While Kenyans eagerly await the official declaration, the IEBC is still confirming the presidential election results in the Bomas of Kenya.
The IEBC made all of the Forms 34A available on their website and granted the public and the media access to the polling place results. Wafula Chebukati, the chairman of the IEBC also granted the media leeway to do a parallel tally of the results but noted that the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission will declare the winner.
The final results have now been made public by Radio Jambo, Reuters, and Radio Africa in accordance with Forms 34B, which are accessible on the website of the IEBC.
Results from Reuters show that William Ruto, the deputy president, received 52% of the votes cast.
The Deputy President received 7,152,655 votes, or 50.36% of the votes cast, as per Radio Africa's count. With 6,942,884, Raila Odinga has 48.88% of the vote.
"Shirika la wanahabari wa Reuters wanaripoti kuwa William Ruto ndiye anayeongoza na 52% ya kura zilizopigwa. Majumlisho ya Radio Africa ya fomu 34B inaonyesha kuwa Ruto alipata 50.36% ya kura ikilinganishwa na 48.88% ya Raila."
