Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru and Narc Kenya leader Martha Karua have been exchanging friendly fire on social media as their political rivalry moved to the corridors of justice.

Karua has on two separate occasions failed to convince the courts to nullify Waiguru’s election on grounds that the August 8, 2017 election was not free and fair.

Following the latest defeat at the Court of Appeal, Karua, a former powerful Minister during former President Mwai Kibaki’s regime, confirmed she will be filing yet another appeal in the highest court in the land.

Karua also questioned the way Waiguru was reportedly confident ahead of Thursday’s Court of Appeal ruling.

To this Waiguru responded by suggesting that God had handed her the victory.

“Martha Karua, it’s called faith and confidence in the GOD of Justice, you should try it,” tweeted.

She later deleted that tweet.

She followed it up with a number of religious-themed tweets.

So fierce is the political rivalry between these two Jubilee Party leaders that President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto have in the past failed to mediate.
