One of the country's political seasoned veterans, Raila has now run for president five times. But the crucial query is whether Raila's fifth attempt will be fortunate or unfortunate. The coalition leader of Azimio La Umoja One appears to be casting the final die, and this could be the final election in which he runs for president.
According to the most recent findings of form 34B, Ruto is likely to succeed outgoing President Uhuru Kenyatta, who was reportedly spotted removing his personal belongings from the state residence. 253 out of 291 constituencies' results have already been certified, and Ruto is in the lead. With a total of 6,406,388 votes, Ruto has a percentage of 51.18%, while Raila has 6,025,940 votes and a percentage of 48.18%.
Although the contest is extremely close, statistics show that Ruto has a possibility of ousting the more seasoned lawmakers. However, let's wait patiently for the official IEBC pronouncement in the meanwhile.
