Uhuru: This is why I snubbed presidential debate

President Uhuru Kenyatta has spoken for the first time on his decision to skip the much-publicised presidential debate.

The head of state told Nyeri residents that he had nothing to debate with Nasa flag bearer Raila Odinga.

“I decided that he will debate alone because I have nothing to debate with him. I will not waste my time there. I deliberately snubbed the debate because there is nothing to debate with him,” he said.

“Do you want me to spend my time responding to Raila or commissioning projects?” he posed.

On Monday, Mr Odinga stole the show in a solo platform after the president gave the debate a wide berth.
