Ruto Pulls Surprise Win In Gatundu Where Uhuru Cast His Vote

Deputy President William Ruto has floored former Prime Minister Raila Odinga at the polling station where President Uhuru Kenyatta cast his vote on Tuesday, August 9.

Before Kenyatta cast his vote at the station, he had accompanied First Lady Margret Kenyatta to St Mary's School in Nairobi where she also cast her vote at around 7:00 am.

IEBC results from the two polling stations have revealed a very huge margin between William Ruto and Raila Odinga.

At Mutomo Polling Station Kenya Kwanza presidential candidate William Ruto garnered 983 votes while Azimio la Umoja candidate Raila Odinga got 464 votes. Agano's David Mwaure got four votes while Roots Party of Kenya presidential candidate George Wajackoyah got 9 votes.

William Ruto has also floored Raila Odinga in Martha Karua's backyard despite Martha's attempt to rally residents from the region behind Raila Odinga.

This comes after IEBC reported that 42,663 of 46,229 polling stations have already submitted their results to the national tallying center at Bomas of Kenya.
