#UhuruRudiDebate – How Kenyans Told Uhuru NOT To Withdraw From The Presidential Debate

February 20, 2013

As reported earlier, Jubilee has withdrawn their presidential candidate Uhuru Kenyatta from Monday’s presidential debate citing various reasons. Key among them is Linus Kaikai’s bias, especially on the ICC matter. ( Read: Why Uhuru Withdrew From The 2nd Presidential Debate)

Majority of those commenting online however do not understand how he could have walked out, when everyone says he won the first debate. Some are however convinced with the reasons TNA gave and believe their candidate does not need debates to tell Kenyans what he’ll do for them. 
Those who think that Uhuru should be in the debate have their reasons too, and yesterday they started a Twitter trend to compel the deputy premiere to get back on the podium. #UhuruRudiDebate was the hash tag they used, and below are some of their tweets.
