The debate had two tiers with the first one seeing Roots party's DP candidate, Justina Wamae lock horns with Ruth Wambui of Agano party.

The second tier and much anticipated one saw UDA's DP candidate, Rigathi Gachagua and Azimio's Martha Karua flex their muscles.

Every candidate came armed with facts and manifestos ready to win over voters and what followed was blow after blow of strong opinions, counter attacks and hilarious jabs directed at their opponents.
