National Super Alliance (NASA) presidential running mate Kalonzo Musyoka now says that they tricked President Uhuru Kenyatta into missing the Presidential Debate held on Monday evening.
Musyoka said that the head of state fell for the trick and left their candidate Raila to have 90 minutes of prime time on radio and national TVs.
The former Vice President said his decision to skip running mates’ debate last well was a calculated scheme to blindfold Jubilee into believing that Odinga would snub yesterday's debate.
“We tricked them… we knew those guys fear being accountable to the citizens and that is why I told Raila to seize the moment,” he told residents of Nthongoni as he campaigned in Makueni County.
Speaking separately in Runyenjes, Embu on Tuesday, Odinga said he did not understand why Uhuru skipped the debate. “I was ready for him and wanted to question what he has done for the people,” he said.
However, speaking in Nyeri on Tuesday, President Uhuru said attending the debate would have been a waste of time.
