Update: Current Situation In Kisumu A Day After IEBC Declared Ruto President-Elect

The Kisumu City near the lakeside was married with riots especially from Kondele pro-Raila supporters immediately after the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) chairman Wafula Chebukati declared DP William Ruto as President-elect.

The announcement did not please the area residents who were anticipating that the ODM leader Raila Odinga would finally emerge victorious after his 5th stab at the presidency. The police were forced to swing quickly into action and contain the situation and used teargas canisters to disperse the rowdy youths.

A day later, Tuko News has published a report on the current situation in the city while sharing photos:

"Calm returns in Kisumu after an evening of fracas between police and protesters. A spotcheck in the lakeside city showed that transport and operation of small businesses ran smoothly."

Many politicians across both sides of the political divide are calling for Kenyans to maintain peace and unity among themselves while awaiting any new update from the Azimio team concerning the next move.
