The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) has said it officially announce the final presidential election results at 4pm on Monday 15 August, 2022.
Unlike earlier when they had said that the announcement would be made at 3pm, the commission has changed the same with a variation of one hour.
Deputy President William Ruto has arrived at the Bomas of Kenya ahead of the announcement of the presidential results.Ruto arrived at the National Tallying Centre at exactly 3 pm.
It is not yet clear if the Azimio la Umoja One Kenya Alliance presidential candidate who is also the former Prime Minister Raila Amollo Odinga will attend the event.
The long delay by the IEBC in announcing the final verified results of the August 9 presidential election is starting to lead to confusion. There have been conflicting reports about the state of the vote count.
The IEBC latest verified Form 34 Bs show William Ruto leading Raila Odinga. Reuters reports that Ruto is leading Raila with 52 percent of the vote in its nearly complete tally of Form 34As.
