Martha Karua, leader of Narc-Kenya, took Twitter on to angrily blast K24 for saying she answered a controversial question about Anglo-Leasing. During the recorded interview with Anne Kiguta, a question that Karua revealed was never asked.
In contrast to the past two live interviews with DP William Ruto and Former Jubilee Party Chairman David Murathe, Kiguta’s show dubbed Punchline returned to playing an already recorded tape.
“Inaccurate! The ministers in question stepped aside. Secondly, this question was not asked at all. Listen to the tape carefully,”
The real question according to K24 recordings was: “Why did you not resign in 2005/2006 when it became clear that your cabinet colleagues were going slow on corruption at that time as Kiraitu Murungi said in the tips of John Githongo. Why did it take you three years and not your resignation to kick in your values, “Kiguta asked.
Karua continued to protect herself.
“I became Justice Minister after Kiraitu’s departure. It didn’t interfere with my ministry and I felt that I was serving Kenyans. Even when I vetoed Anglo-Leasing’s payment in June 2007, they have never been paid, everything has been stopped. They only began paying when I resigned two years later in 2009 from the government.
“They tried to do other stuff I’m not going to delve into as well, then I lamented and they stopped. When I resigned when they began to do the same stuff, “Karua disclosed.
