"I Have Agreed to Attend the Presidential Debate, I've Participated Before" Raila Odinga Announces

A presidential discussion scheduled for early next month will feature ODM leader Hon. Raila Odinga, who is running for president of Kenya as a member of the Azimio la Umoja One Kenya alliance.

When asked about his decision to participate in this debate, former Prime Minister Raila said that he agreed to do so since he had previously taken part in a debate in which his rivals had declined to show up.

This time, his availability and preparation will determine whether or not he is willing to participate in such a debate. William Ruto, the deputy president, has previously threatened to skip the event because he believes some of the media outlets there are prejudiced against his team.

"I've committed to going to the presidential debate, which will take place on Sunday." I've done this before, and the last time my competitors refused to show up, I participated on my own, "declared the Hon Raila Odinga. "So, Tim's availability and preparedness will be key factors." I'm putting my name on the list to attend. I'm always prepared, "she said.
