Confusions have started on calculation of percentages. Yesterday, the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) chairman Wafula Chebukati declared the fifth president of the Republic of Kenya. According to Chebukati, William Ruto was leading with 50.49% followed closely with Former Prime Minister Raila Odinga with 48.85%. George Wajackoyah garnered 0.44% while David Mwaure Waihiga 0.23%.
Four commissioners from the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission who rejected presidential results have confused Kenyans with there final aggregated percentages of their results. The vice-chairperson of IEBC, Juliana Cherera who is leading the group, today August 16, the rebel commissioners explained that they did not agreed with the results announced by Wafula Chebukati because the total percentage by each candidate summed up to 100.01% instead of 100%.
"Chebukati's aggregation was as follows 48.85%, 50.49%, 0.27% and 0.44%. This summation gives us a total of 100.01%. This translates to approximately 142,000 votes which will make a significant difference in the final results." She said.
However, when calculating the total number of votes, which is 14.2 million, against 0.01% many people are getting a total of 1,400 votes.
