Azimio Wants IEBC To Halt Vote Tallying After Alleging What Was Happening

Kenyans are excitedly awaiting the announcement of the country's next leader. The two primary candidates in the contest to succeed President Uhuru Kenyatta are William Ruto of the United Development Alliance (UDA) and Raila Odinga of the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM).

Results counting for the presidential election picked up steam on Friday, August 12, as the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) raced against time to announce the election's outcome before the deadline on Tuesday.

A verbal brawl has broken out at Bomas, where the IEBC is counting votes for the presidency.

As can be seen in the video, Azimio agents have requested that Wafula Chebukati pause the tallying process so that they may voice their concern.

The Azimio camp claims that the opposing Kenya Kwanza camp engaged in unfair practices to help their presidential candidate win.

On Saturday, August 13, Abdi Guliye, the Returning Officer for the Presidential Election, addressed the media and indicated that only presidential chief agents, their assistants, clerks, diplomats, observers, and the journalists would be permitted inside the tallying facility.

Chebukati stated that the verification procedure needed to be strengthened so that ROs could be approved.
