The comforting message comes two days after a United Democratic Alliance (UDA) vehicle ferrying Gachagua supporters over-turned in Nyeri County.
Six supporters were reported injured, two of them critically while the vehicle – a Landcruiser – was also damaged.
Karua and Gachagua are direct rivals in the election with both hoping to take over the Deputy President’s office should their presidential candidates namely Raila Odinga and William Ruto respectively.
