Presidential Debates Steering Committee chair, Wachira Waruru says the committee will clarify all matters guidelines and answer queries related to the set format.

The committee will issue a comprehensive statement on concerns raised after Court makes a ruling on matters arising in regard to the Presidential Debate.
