Chebukati Makes Major Chebukati Makes Major Announcement After Declaring Ruto As President-elect Yesterday

Just one day after being named president and vice president, Wafula Chebukati, the chairman of the IEBC, has officially gazetted William Ruto and Rigathi Gachagua as the country's president and vice president, respectively.This follows Ruto's election victory with over 7.1 million votes, defeating Raila Odinga, who received 6.9 million votes.

If the Azimio Coalition does not file a petition in the Supreme Court to challenge the Chebukati results, Ruto and Gachagua will take office after being sworn in at the end of this month.Unlike all previous presidents, who had to run for office multiple times before being elected, Ruto will be remembered as Kenya's most successful candidate to run for office for the first time and win the election in one go.

The Azimio Coalition must now decide whether to file an appeal with the Supreme Court, as previously suggested, or to accept defeat.

What is your view? What do you think Azimio will do ?
