Prior to the official declaration of presidential results yesterday at BOMAS of Kenya, the Azimio La Umoja coalition, led by their chief agent, began to contest the results, claiming a lack of transparency during the vote tallying process.
Their complaints slowed the process, but in the end, IEBC chairman Hon. Wafula Chebukati declared William Ruto as president with a total of 7,176,141 votes cast, representing 50.49% of all valid votes cast. Raila Odinga of the Azimio La Umoja coalition came in second with 6,942, 930 votes.
Honorable City Lawyer TUKO News verified Facebook page Donald Kipkorir, a close ally of ODM leader Hon. Raila Odinga has stated that the presidential elections may be re-run and that their supporters should remain calm.
He went on to say that they have enough evidence to show how elections were rigged, and he is confident that justice will prevail in court.
Kenyans are urged to remain calm and peaceful as the court will address any complaints that may arise from the recently concluded general election.
