Just In: IG Hillary Mutyambai Speaks After Ruto Was Named President-Elect

Since the election results have been made public by the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission, Hillary Mutyambai, speaking on behalf of the NPS, has mentioned in his statement that Kenyans need to make sure that they keep the peace now that the results of the election have been made public.

A portion of the announcement states, "As you are all know, the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission has now fulfilled its constitutional obligation of proclaiming the results of the presidential election in additional to the results of the various other elected offices."

Since then, the IG of the National Police Service has extended his gratitude to all of the individuals who were responsible for maintaining the calm during the elections and has urged them to maintain that peace in the future.

In the opinion of the IG, Kenyans need to put aside their differences and work together to guarantee that the country would continue to belong to all of its citizens, whatever which side of the political divide they choose to support during the elections.

This comes hours after the chairman of Kenya's electoral commission announced Deputy President William Ruto the victor of the close presidential race over five-time contender Raila Odinga. This is a triumph for the man who unsettled politics by alluring to struggling Kenyans on economic terms rather than on traditional ethnic ones. Ruto defeated Odinga.

According to the chairman, Ruto earned 50.49 percent of the vote, while Odinga received 48.85 percent of the vote.
