Kenyans on Twitter were all praise for Muthiora Kariara, the only candidate who showed up for the running mates debate on Monday.

Mr Kariara, the running mate of Japheth Kaluyu, faced the nation alone for more than 50 minutes after the rest of the candidates failed to show up.

The debate lasted between 6:20 pm and 7:10 pm. The second debate will start at 8pm.

There are eight presidential candidates and an equal number of running mates.

The youthful was put to task by KTN’s Sophia Wanuna and Citizen TV’s Fred Indimuli.

He made a case for his team to be sent to State House on August 8.

“Most of you know me because I was never funded by any cartel. When we assume office we won’t have “tenderpreneurs,” said Mr Kariara.

“We will be committed to giving youths the kind of jobs they want and need. Not all youths want to go to the National Youth Service. Some want to work online jobs.”

Kenyans on Twitter were impressed by his bravery.
