Martha Karua’s ‘son’ blasts Twitter troll

Martha Karua’s ‘son’ George Maringa has told off an annoying tweep who trolled him on social media.

It started when Maringa, a respected Tv journalist attached to Kenya Television Network (KTN), had shared a series of tweets in which he appeared to publicly show support for her mum who failed to win the presidency.

Karua was contesting as Azimio presidential candidate Raila Odinga’s running mate and was set to be named Deputy President has Odinga won the election.

But he lost to William Ruto, the current President-elect.

Maringa’s tweets attracted the attention of a nosy follower who sarcastically asked if Karua is her mum.


Maringa is the son of Karua’s sister but the celebrated politician has repeatedly referred to him as her son.

Besides his day job as a practicing journalist, Maringa describes himself as someone who is ardent in protecting and defending public interests, peace, and human rights, especially for the minority groups and less fortunate in society.
