Roots Party presidential candidate George Wajackoyah has left the Catholic University where the is Presidential debate is scheduled to happen.
Wajackoyah wanted all four presidential candidates to have a joint debate as opposed to the two tier debate fronted by the secretariat.
Before leaving, Wajackoyah said nobody responded to his letter concerning his demands.
"If the media wants to corrupt the intelligence of this society, if the media wants to run corruption in this country, if the media itself can do what they have done, to hell with them,” he said as he arrived at the CUEA on Tuesday some minutes before 5Pm.
Wajackoyah was accompanied by his wife Meller Luchiri who wore an African attire.
Before his motorcade left the venue, Wajackoyah awarded a young artisan who was standing at the entrance with his portrait.
Wajackoyah gave the young man sh3000.
Wajackoyah had previously announced that he was not going to take part in the presidential debate.
In a press release by the party's spokesman Wilson Muirani alias Jamoh Ule Msee, Wajockoyah said he will not be subjected to 'the joke of an already predetermined debate'.
"We would like to state that our presidential candidate Prof Wajackoyah will not attend the presidential debate because we will not subject the incoming President to the joke of an already predetermined debate," reads the statement.
Wajackoyah further said that the fourth estate cannot decide the outcome of an election before the poll day.
He was referring to the presidential debate which has been divided into two sessions based on the recent poll results.
The current arrangement by the Presidential Debate Secretariat is to have a two-tier debate; the first featuring candidates whose popularity in the three most recent polls stood below 5 per cent while the second featuring candidates who polled above 5 per cent in the same surveys.
"The notion that some candidates are trailing others or some leading others is baseless. We refuse to be counted as 'others' in this important democratic duty of seeking the presidency," reads the statement.
