Igathe Vs Sakaja: Latest on The Leading Candidate in Nairobi Governor Race

As the tallying of ballots proceeds around the nation, Kenyans are anxious to discover not just the results of the race for president but also the results of the race for governor in Nairobi.

Both Johnstone Sakaja and former Director General Polycarp Igathe are vying for the position of mayor of Nairobi, which is a political battleground with both Azimio la Umoja and Kenya Kwanza.

Nairobi, the capital city of Kenya, is the strategic devolution unit for any national government to control, and the governor has access to billions of shillings in funding for the city's operations.

The candidates' respective tribal connections not only played a significant role in the selection of their running mates but also played a significant role in the fight for governor.

Now, according to a news report that was broadcast on TV47, Johnson Sakaja is in the lead in three constituencies with 136,739 votes, and Polycarp Igathe is in second place with 98,219.

However, there was a standoff at the main tallying center over allegations of voter bribery, which caused the process of tallying the votes to be halted before it was eventually resumed.

At the conclusion of the vote tallying process, the Returning Officer will make the official announcement of the results.
