Karua responds after Ruto beat Raila in her polling station

Karua was responding to a statement by a curious voter who asked her to reconsider her political stand.
“We swept your polling station after you stepped in! UDA is a tsunami mum. Even though I like your principles and love your bravery and courage, you went contrary to the expectations of many by supporting the BBI founders and hustlers discriminators. After our win, rethink,” the Twitter user told Karua.
In a short rebuttal, the Azimio presidential running mate said that her political stand will always be where her heart is.
“Will always go with my heart!” Karua said. She then added that Kenyans should wait for the IEBC to announce the winner of the presidential elections. “It’s not done till it’s done.”
