In Summary
  • Apart from Mr Ruto and his Nasa counterpart Kalonzo Musyoka, other running mates are Mr Moses Marango for Mr Joseph Nyaga, Mr Titus N’getuny, Mr Emmanuel Nzai, Ms Miriam Mutua and Mr Eliud Kariara.
  • Last week, the steering committee postponed the presidential debate from July 10 to July 24 after President Kenyatta and National Super Alliance flagbearer Raila Odinga said they would not take part, citing matters to do with organisation.

It is all systems go as eight presidential running mates are expected to face off with one another at Catholic University of Eastern Africa, Karen on Monday.

It is not, however, clear if Deputy President William Ruto would take part in the debate as earlier reports indicated that would not.

The chairman of the Steering Committee Organising Presidential Debates Wachira Waruru on Saturday told the Nation that preparations for the much-awaited event had been finalised.

“We invited them all and expect them to turn up tomorrow (Monday) although none has confirmed attendance,” Mr Waruru said.

DEBATE

“There is still time for them to confirm but as a committee, we are  prepared for the debate.”

Apart from Mr Ruto and his National Super Alliance counterpart Kalonzo Musyoka, other running mates are Mr Moses Marango for Mr Joseph Nyaga, Mr Titus N’getuny (Mr Abduba Dida), Mr Emmanuel Nzai (Dr Ekuru Aukot) Ms Miriam Mutua (Mr Michael Wainaina) and Mr Eliud Kariara (Mr Japheth Kavinga).

Last week, the steering committee postponed the presidential debate from July 10 to July 24 after President Kenyatta and National Super Alliance flagbearer Raila Odinga said they would not take part, citing matters to do with organisation.
