“We have noted with much concern the repeated and continued bias and propaganda in a section of Kenya’s mainstream media in abuse of statutory,” he said.

“Under the current partisan media environment, we have advised our candidate against participating in the presidential debate.”

Mohammed said Political news is a matter of public interest and its coverage therefore by journalists, media practitioners or media enterprises has to be done fairly, accurately, and with all sides of the story being reported.

“This has been deliberately contravened, ignored, and bravely abused by the sections of the media,” he said.

The presidential debate is not organised by a particular media house.

Media Owners Association, Media Council of Kenya, and Kenya Editors Guild jointly announced that the Presidential and Deputy Presidential Debates will take place before the elections.

The institutions said specific dates, the venue, and logistics will be announced at a later date.

“It is scheduled to take place in July in consultation with Political parties ahead of August 9, 2022. Also, a team of senior editors from across media houses has been put in place to secure the interest of Kenyans and to deliver fairness to all concerned,” they said in a joint statement.

During the debate, a live audience representing the various sectors of the society will be present and the public will have a platform to send in their questions as well.

It is at this point that the Contenders are expected to sell their agenda for the country and what is in store for Kenyans ahead of the August elections.

You don’t want this man as your deputy in any debate about Kenya and human rights for the citizens.

Shut it off Ruto.

You and your team have nothing for the republic.

The country is moving ahead. Now we want to see the program.

Bring it on.

Mukuru Kwa Njenga is a very special for me personally. I lived at the Railway Training School, next door, all my life as a student at Nairobi University. We used to call the college RATASA and football players were there all the time coaching the young kids.

Completely astonishing at Mukuru Kwa Njenga and it is going to be all over the country. This was a defining day for the 2022 elections. Kenyans know where they want to go. Ruto and UDA are finished.
