Presidential candidates will once again face-off in a debate on key issues as the March 4 poll draws closer.

The debate organised by mainstream churches and in conjunction with national broadcaster KBC and Daystar University will take place at the Trinity Hall of the All Saints Cathedral between 7pm and 9pm this evening.

Professor Levi Obonyo, Dean of the School of Communication at Daystar confirmed the debate and said that all the eight presidential candidates are expected to attend.

“The candidates have confirmed attendance. They will tackle questions on the key areas of integrity, leadership and responsibility, family values, and constitutional implementation,” Professor Obonyo said.

The moderator for today’s debate will be former head of BBC Africa Joseph Wairungu. Comments sent in by viewers and listeners will run live as follow-up questions for the presidential candidates.

The candidates are set to meet in another debate to be aired across all stations on February 25 before they face-off in the elections.
