“I am a future presidential candidate and it could be 2022. It could also be any time. I leave my options open,” Karua said at Citizen TV after being asked her to explain her future plans in the political arena.
The lawyer was previously on the presidential ballot in 2013 as the only female presidential candidate. She emerged sixth.
