Evanson Churu: Presidential debates anywhere in the world are supposed to assist citizens to interrogate those looking for the job of president.
Hence it is not meant to be a competition but rather an information dissemination forum.
Failing to attend shows Uhuru is proud and does not care.
David Davis: The President was the loser.
He will pay for skipping the debate. We expected him to attend and defend his record. His advisers missed the point by telling him to keep off.
Noor Ahmed: I don’t think Raila seized the moment.
He was not articulate on many issues. All he did was a PR stunt.
I think the moderators were partisan.
That is why the debate was not a success.
