Just In: Raila Odinga's Polling Station Disappoints Him As It Records Only 56% Voter Turnout

Old Kibra Primary School, the voting center at where Azimio la Umoja One Kenya Coalition Party presidential candidate Raila Odinga cast his ballot, reported a turnout of 56.5 percent during the election that took place on Tuesday, August 9th.

This comes as a result of the fact that just 4,000 out of 7,071 registered voters across 11 streams came up to cast their ballots.

It is very hilarious that Raila is calling for his supporters to turn out in large numbers and vote for him.

The voting station contains 12 different feeds; at the time that this article was being written, the results from one of those streams were not yet available.

Raila received 2,420 votes out of a total of 4,000 votes cast, which corresponds to 60.5% of the votes, whereas DP Ruto received 1,525 votes, which represents 38.12% of the votes. George Wajackoyah received 13 votes, while David Mwaure received only 4.

On the other hand, the voter participation in Kosachei, the polling center where his most direct challenger, Deputy President William Ruto, voted, was 77.5%.

Oburu Odinga's competitor for the Siaya senatorial seat in Kenya has conceded defeat.

Ruto received 918 votes, which is 77.5 percent of the total 1,184 votes cast in the Kosachei constituency. Raila received 26 votes, which is 2 percent of the total. Two votes were cast for Mwaure, while none were cast for Wajackoyah.
