Reuters Explain Why Kenyans Cannot Access Its Election Results

Reuters, a London-based news outlet, has explained why Kenyans may no longer access presidential results statistics on their feed.

The global news outlet said in a statement published on Saturday, August 13 that the statistics were unavailable on the Google Search Engine because Google employees were hard at work compiling and tabulating the data.

Reuters also noted that it was still tallying results as announced by the Independent Electricity and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) and will regularly offer updates on its news stream.

The Reuters tally of results from the Kenyan presidential election is no longer available with a simple Google search.

According to a Reuters statement, "our tally is based on preliminary constituency level forms posted on the election commission website and compiled by our data team outside the country."

Additionally, the news outlet clarified that their tallies were confirmed, calming concerns of bias towards any of the four presidential candidates.

We continue to report on the Kenyan election in an unbiased and objective manner, including providing updates on the preliminary and final voting data compiled by the electoral commission.

Concerns were expressed by social media users over the disappearance of the statistics available on Google, prompting a statement from Reuters.
