In a Facebook post he posted today Kimani Ichung’wa confirmed that he will represent DP William Ruto for tomorrows running mate debate.
Confirmed. I am very ready on behalf of my Party to face off with Kalonzo Musyoka or any of the NASA principals on behalf of the Deputy President who is engaged in the campaigns at the Coast.
I feel energised to play my civic responsibility to expose their (NASA’s) lack of substance and vision for this country as we expound on the Transformative Agenda 2017-2022.
The Deputy President, William Ruto will not be present during the running mate debate slated for Monday.
Ruto hinted at missing in action on Saturday. According to the ‘hustler,’ he only go to know about the debate through a news alert.
I am surprised no one has engaged me on the debate. Courtesy demands that date, time, rules of engagement would have been made available.

According to Communications Director PSCU, Dennis Itumbi, Ruto will be represented by MP Kikuyu, Kimani Ichung’wa.
The Debates Media Limited has had a rough time organizing both the Presidential and Running mate debates.
They have been accused by both political divides of being arrogant, disorganized.
Kimani Ichung’wa is also the only Member of Parliament sure of being part of the 12 parliament. He was unopposed in his re-election bid for the Kikuyu seat.
Kalonzo Musyoka will be part of the running mate debate for a second time running.
