Presidential candidate Uhuru Kenyatta is yet to confirm whether he will be in attendance at the second presidential debate scheduled for tonight.
Kenyatta who is eyeing the presidency on a Jubilee coalition ticket last week wrote to the debate organising committee to inform them of his withdrawal.
He further requested to meet the committee to explain his reasons for withdrawing from the forthcoming debate. Team Uhuru, a lobby group campaigning for the candidate said Kenyatta was treated unfairly in the first debate on February 11.
The lobby group lamented the manner in which moderator Linus Kaikai presented the ICC question to Kenyatta. Uhuru appeared caught off guard by moderator Kaikai's question on how practical it would be for him to run the country from the Hague if elected. Uhuru's trial is due to start on April 11.
The Jubilee presidential aspirant is however under pressure from his supporters, who say failure to attend the final debate will discredit his alliance.
In today's debate which will be in Kiswahili, candidates will be questioned on land issues, their economic programmes, devolution and foreign policy.
