The former Prime Minister was the sole participant at the debate for the leading presidential candidates after President Uhuru Kenyatta ended a day of mixed signals from State House by skipping the event.

Odinga used the opportunity to elaborate on his campaign promises such as the reduction of rent and to emphasise his assertions that all the security agencies are involved in a conspiracy with the Jubilee administration.

Raila also used podium to clarify the matter of having a parallel  tallying center in Tanzania.

“Why should somebody be worried about a polling centre whether it is in Germany, Tanzania or even on the moon? It should not be an issue,” he added.

However when he was pushed to give a response to the question, he said  “We have a tallying centre in Kenya, in Kenya and in the clouds.”
