The two leaders will be meeting with the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) chiefs, chaired by its chairman, Wafula Chebukati.

The meeting will also involve other presidential candidates in the August 8 General Election.

The leaders will convene at Lillian Towers in Nairobi.

According to Mr. Chebukati the agenda of the meeting will be to clarify legal and operational requirements for nomination of candidates as well as the qualification for each elective position.

It will also involve sharing the programme of activities and expectations from candidates during the nomination and emphasising the role of candidates in ensuring peaceful elections.

At the same time, the leader will also agree on the schedule for presentation of nomination papers.

Similar but separate meetings will be held in all 47 counties and 290 constituencies between all elective candidates and IEBC returning officers.
