Azimio-One Kenya had responded to claims of demanding the use of a lie detector during the upcoming presidential debate.
A letter which has been making rounds on Social media on Friday, July 23 was said to have been signed by by Raila's campaign secretariat Makau Mutua.
In the letter, the coalition had requested the use of a lie detector on all the candidates to verify their answers during the debate.
"Regarding the presidential debate set for July 26, 2022 to be held at the Catholic University of Eastern Africa, Team Azimio had reservations based on a cocktail of factors. Central to our unease had been the preferential treatment given to our competitors in previous debates, specifically, the Nairobi gubernatorial debate and the running matrs debate."
"None of the candidates should be allowed to take cheat notes or mobile phones, earpieces and other gadgets to the debate. A lie detector should be attached to each candidate and results displayed in real-time," the letter stated in part.
Other demands included in the fake letter included the presentation and verification of certificates and the establishment of a team to check the facts.
