After the general elections on August 9, some citizens of Uasin Gishu County have urged the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission, or IEBC, headed by Wafula Chebukati, to expedite the tallying of the presidential results.
Speaking to KTN News on Saturday night, inhabitants of Eldoret said that most people running businesses have been losing money because there aren't any customers because everyone is waiting for the presidential election results before they can get back to their regular life.
We ask the IEBC to act quickly and inform us of the president-elect. Whether Raila Odinga or William Ruto prevails, we will accept the result because Kenya must ultimately advance.
However, the majority of them expressed confidence that Deputy President William Ruto will win, saying they chose him because they believed he would uphold the Kenya Kwanza Alliance platform.
Ruto's home county is Uasin Gishu, thus the locals there have strong hopes that he will be chosen as President Uhuru Kenyatta's successor after defeating Mr. Odinga, his major challenger in the Azimio La Umoja One Kenya Alliance.
