The Vice President’s Debate will take place on Tuesday, July 19 at the Catholic University for Eastern Africa (CUEA) in Karen, Nairobi.

Like the just-concluded Nairobi Governors’ Debate, Tuesday’s, due to begin at 5 p.m., will also be split into two parts.

The first tier will include running mates who have scored less than 5% in recent opinion polls, while the second tier will include candidates whose approval rating is above 5%.

According to the debates secretariat, the first round of the debate will take place from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. while the second debate will be broadcast from 8:00 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.

The first tier will be moderated by TV47 News presenter Linda Alela and KBC’s John Jacob Kioria, while the second tier will be moderated by KTN’s Sophia Wanuna and NTV’s James Smart.

Citizen TV’s Trevor Ombija will be the panel moderators for both debates.

“The moderators were selected on the basis of rigorous criteria which attach, among others, the principles of impartiality, fairness and objectivity, a good understanding of the Kenyan political landscape and the major issues of this election,” said Clifford, head of the presidential debates secretariat. Macoka said.

Moderators should select questions to ask applicants and should not share them. They are also prohibited from meeting the candidates before the debate.

Kenyans can expect the running mates of the four recognized presidential candidates to appear on Tuesday, including Ruth Mutua of Agano, Rigathi Gachagua of the United Democratic Alliance, Justin Wamae of the Roots Party and Martha Karua of the Alliance Azimio la Umoja-One Kenya.

The debate will be broadcast and streamed by all media outlets in Kenya.
