The locals are now demanding action on anyone who was irregularly allocated land in the area and fresh audit of the process.

The land issue, coupled by reports that she received Ksh7.5 million from the British America Tobacco (BAT) in the run-up to the 2013 elections to help protect the firm’s commercial interests, has left Karua’s campaign in turmoil.
