Who are the 4 Presidential candidates in Kenya’s 2022 elections?

The general elections in Kenya, are scheduled to be held on the 9th of August 2022. Voters will elect their President, members of the National Assembly and Senate, county governors, and members of the 47 county assemblies.

As of June 6, 2022, only four candidates and their running mates had been cleared. Walter Mong’are’s nomination to run for the presidency was revoked. This was after it emerged that his degree was not from a recognized university as required by law.

The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) has finalized the registration of presidential candidates with only four making it to the ballot paper for the August 9th, 2022 general elections. IEBC Chairman Wafula Chebukati who presided over this exercise as the returning officer of the presidential elections said that the four candidates met the requisite constitutional and statutory requirements, and were therefore successful in their bid to contest as candidates for president.
