A lot has been said about Raila’s Odinga’s running mate Martha Karua, but away from politics, the Iron Lady is a doting mother and a grandmother.

Karua who is a divorcee is a mother of two. She has always kept her family away from social media but every once in a while she gives the public a glimpse into it.

Months ago she took to her Twitter account to flaunt her son, George Maringa.

George was among people who took to their socials to congratulate Karua after she was chosen as Raila Odinga’s running mate in the 2022 general elections.

Sharing a photo of himself alongside his mum George captioned,
