Why Ramogi Tv, Citizen Tv And Inoro Tv are Showing Same Presidential Election Results

Since yesterday, results for the presidential position have been streaming across various media platforms. Different tv stations are also airing their provisional results as tallying is ongoing. Despite the fact that various tv channels are getting the results from the public IEBC portal, results displayed by these tv channels are not all the same, thus causing confusion for many Kenyans. What many people might be wondering about is why there is that lack of uniformity across the media houses. This article explains the reason behind this confusion.

Now, the Kenyan Electoral Body IEBC is uploading form 34As from various polling station on their portal which is open to the public. Individual media station’s downloads these forms and do their own compilation and tallying of the figures on those forms. Therefore, this difference is brought about by the fact that some stations are faster than others in compiling the votes.

Apart from this reason, how individual media teams have set up their arrangement for reliance is also a cause of the difference. Maybe some media station are focusing on results from Ruto's strongholds and thus putting him ahead in the race. Or maybe, focus on Raila’s strongholds putting him ahead.

Also, the media stations that are ahead might be having their many agents/reporters on the ground hence are adding results relayed by their own reporters directly. Consequently, Citizen tv, Inoro tv and Ramogi tv are putting Raila ahead of Ruto and their streaming is uniform because they are getting results from one particular team. Nonetheless, IEBC will give the final results after receiving and compiling all the form 34Bs
