While appearing before a panel of KTN’s Sophia Wanuna and Citizen’s TV’s Fred Indimuli at the session held at the Catholic university of Eastern Africa ,Muthiora proofed to the whole world that given the opportunity he and his candidate will deliver the promise of Kenya.He articulately takeld of how to handle corruption,economic stability ,and tribalism.
He took the podium perfectly well completely diminishing the feeling that other candidates were also expected.
Speaking at the Catholic University of East Africa (CUEA) grounds (the venue of the debates), the National Cohesion and Integration Commission (NCIC) chairman, Francis ole Kaparo, and Nairobi gubernatorial candidate, Miguna Miguna, challenged the Jubilee and opposition National Super Alliance (NASA) candidates to show up for the debates and explain to Kenyans why they need to be elected or re-elected.
