A TV debate for Kenyan politicians hoping to become vice president in next month’s elections went ahead with only one candidate in attendance.

The solo attendee, Muthiora Kariara who is running with independent presidential candidate Japheth Kaluyu, answered questions for about an hour.

 

Some of the candidates were not allowed to take part because they arrived late, while the main candidates for deputy president, the current holder of the office William Ruto and Kalonzo Musyoka of the opposition National Super Alliance, boycotted the debate.

 

Viewers who tuned in saw a stage set with six podiums at the Catholic University of East Africa in Nairobi but only one of them was occupied.
