As the deadline for independent candidates closed on Monday, 10 people have shown interest in the highest office of the land.

The 10 intend to vie for president as independent candidates joining Jubilee’s President Uhuru Kenyatta and Nasa’s Raila Odinga.

Here is a list of the 10 candidates who are seeking the presidency as independents:

She vied for presidential in 2007 on a Workers Congress Party of Kenya garnering 8,624 votes beating Kenneth Matiba with his Saba Saba Asili party ticket.

6. Nixon Kukuboh Jeremiah
