A delegation of Kenya’s media stakeholders, ranging from the Kenya Editors Guild, the Media Council of Kenya and the Media Owners Association held the first round of debates on July 11, 2022. This involved Nairobi County’s gubernatorial aspirants. In a statement from the Presidential Debate team, this round of debates would soon be followed by the deputy presidential debates on July 19 and eventually the presidential debates on July 26, 2022.

In a fact-check of claims made by Nairobi gubernatorial candidate Polycarp Igathe here, Piga Firimbi found that his claims on the rate of eligible voters in Kenya were accurate.

On the other hand, his counterpart Johnson Sakaja, who is hoping to move from his current position as Nairobi Senator to Governor claimed that Nairobi was allocated Sh3.3 billion more from the national budget during his tenure as Senator. Sakaja said this in trying to defend the work he has done for Nairobi citizens as the current Senator.
