The Significance Of The 0.01% In the Presidential Results

If you are a patriotic Kenyan, I am sure that your eyes and ears are glued to the screens. This is due to the controversies that are arising after Honourable William Ruto was declared the fifth president of Kenya.

Even though many people have come out to disagree with the outcome of the election, there is a particular matter of about 0.01% that has attracted the attention of Kenyans.

If you were to tabulate the percentage given by the IEBC commissioner when announcing the results, you might have realised that it totals up to 100.01%. The reason for the 0.01% is due to rounding off of the percentages.

What is the significance of the 0.01%?

After a press briefing by a section of the IEBC commissioners, there has been a lot of confusion on the significance of the 0.01%. This is because some people claim that it is 143,000 votes while others claim that it is 1,400 votes.

If you convert the 0.01% into votes while using 14 million as the base, it accounts for about 1,400 votes.
