Presidential candidates will this evening make their final pleas to the 14.3 million voters as they take to the podiums to argue their cases in the last Presidential debate.

Slated to start at 7pm, the debate to be held at the Brooke house International School, will deal with issues related to economy, land and international relations. KTN's Joe Ageyo and Citizen TV's Uduak Amimo will moderate the event as the candidates will answer questions in a live television event broadcast on all national channels and including radio stations. Internet users will also have an opportunity to view live streaming of the event.

Seven candidates are expected to take part, after Jubilee alliance's Uhuru Kenyatta pulled out, citing bias on the part of one moderator, during the first debate on February 11.

An opinion survey released on Sunday indicates majority of those who watched the first debate will watch today's debate.
