On Monday, July 24 President Uhuru Kenyatta boycott the Presidential debate against his top opponent Raila Odinga.
According to State House Director of Digital Communication Dennis Itumbi the information that was provided to Kenyans about the President agreeing to attend the debate was false and misleading.
However other reasons that have been aired on why Uhuru could not attend the debate has shocked Kenyans.
President Uhuru Kenyatta’s team responded and said this in a part; “The President did not also go to the debate because Linus Kaikai was an ODM candidate in 2007 for the Kilgoris parliamentary nomination, today, he is part of this media house and organizers of the debate and Joe Ageyo is a beneficiary of the Jaramogi Odinga Foundation scholarship to study in Norway on climate change. They can choose to take me to court because I am saying this based on facts. These are pertinent issues that the President wanted addressed,”
