Martha Karua’s lost earring is the subject of jokes during an OKA press briefing [Video]
Senator Baringo Gideon Moi and former Vice President Kalonzo Musyoka traded blame over who might have been responsible for Karua’s lost earring.
Moi was first, putting Kalonzo in the spotlight when he stood up to speak, saying, “Today we had a little one on one with my good friend Martha Karua and we were just chatting and with Kalonzo Musyoka and leo I knew huyu ni Mkamba kweli (today I know he is a Kamba).
“He walks in as we talk and Martha says she can’t find her earring and Kalonzo says ‘Asi!’ Gideon…. If you live long enough you’ll see it all“said the senator.
When the leader of the Wiper party rose to speak, he defended himself by claiming that Senator Moi was there to set him up insisting that he had to give his side of the story.
“Let me paraphrase this because Gideon set a trap for me. The real story was I found Martha looking for her earring and the truth is they were both in that room…at least before I came I hope Martha has could find this earring. Kalonzo said and the crowd burst into laughter.
The former vice president said that all OKA directors have a close relationship with each other and that’s why they were able to joke.
“You see the camaraderie between us as directors of OKA, we are so free with each other and that’s why we want this county to relax,” he added.
