The Verification Of Presidential Results Begins At Bomas

On Thursday, tempers flared at the Bomas of Kenya national tallying centre as the electoral commission began verifying presidential results.

Officials from the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) struggled to keep order after the United Democratic Alliance claimed that unauthorised forms 34A were being smuggled in.

Agents for presidential candidate William Ruto clashed with electoral officials over the suspicious forms, causing a commotion that was only calmed down by the announcement of the results.

Agents for presidential candidate William Ruto clashed with electoral officials over the suspicious forms, causing a commotion that was only defused by IEBC commissioners' intervention.

They threatened to walk out of the process of receiving and collating forms 34A and 34B, led by UDA Secretary-General Veronica Maina. Ms Maina engaged the poll body's officials at the quality assurance desk for at least 10 minutes before other UDA agents arrived.

With a crowd forming and commotion appearing to be unavoidable, IEBC Vice Chairperson Juliana Cherera and Commissioner Francis Wanderi intervened to keep things under control.
