Deputy president under Jubilee coalition William Ruto is expected to join seven other running mates this evening in a first-of-a-kind debate in which the similarity of the shared vision between them and their respective principals will be assessed.
Professor Levi Obonyo, the Dean, School of Communication at Daystar University, one of the institutions that organised for the debate, said that Ruto had through his chief communications officer confirmed that he will attend the session.
Ruto's presence at the debate is however not certain as he is at the moment in a status conference with the ICC via video-link. The pre-trial conference is meant to lay down the logistics of court hearing schedule to take place in April. All other running mates have confirmed attendance.
The running mates' debate comes barely three days after the inaugural presidential debate where all eight candidates got a chance to present their suitability on key issues.
The debate that will be starting at 7 pm will take place at the All Saints Cathedral. It will air on national broadcaster KBC and across 13 Christian radio stations.
Viewers and listeners will be able to participate on social media platforms Facebook (Presidential Debate 2013: The Christian Edge), and Twitter (@pdc2013).
