Kenyan politician Martha Wangari Karua was born on September 22, 1957. She is a former, long-serving representative for Kenya’s Gichugu Constituency and a High Court advocate. Prior to her resignation from that position in April 2009, she served as Minister of Justice. She has persistently worked for the advancement of democracy and the defense of women’s rights.
Karua came to public notice after she and a Catholic priest, Fr. Dominic Wamugunda, were robbed and carjacked on December 6, 2003, in the middle of the night, as they were driving to her home.
Karua, after Charity Ngilu and Wangari Maathai in the 1997 elections, was the third woman to contest for the highest position when she did so in 2013 on the Narc-Kenya ticket. She finished the race in sixth place. She was selected to compete for deputy president when Raila Odinga nominated her as his running mate in the general election of Kenya in 2022.
