NASA senior adviser Salim Lone has said that Raila Odinga will not participate in the presidential debate if its format is not changed.
Lone said this in a statement on Wednesday.
This comes hours after Raphael Tuju, Jubilee Party’s Secretary General announced President Uhuru Kenyatta will not take part as he was not consulted.
Lone said, “The NASA presidential campaign secretariat has urged the President to be open to debating Raila on issues affecting Kenyans in the present circumstances.”
The first debate is slated for July 10 while running mates will argue their bids on July 17. The final presidential debate will be held on July 24.
