Over the past few months, there has been a lot of activity in the country's political discourse thanks to the interest of many foreign journalists in learning who would be Kenya's next president.
Kenyans finally have the chance to chose their leaders after months of intensified political activity in the nation. William Ruto, a Kwanza candidate in Kenya, was proclaimed the victor over Raila Odinga, the leader of the ODM.
Even after Ruto was declared the victor, the former prime minister challenged the results in court. Tomorrow is when the case will be decided.
Independent media outlets, both domestically and abroad, have nevertheless continued to report on the issue in spite of this. The New York Times and BBC media have both admitted that they were unable to uncover any evidence of electoral fraud despite Raila's claims.
The Washington Post is the most recent member of the global media to have a view on the subject. The Washington Post reported that outgoing President Uhuru Kenyatta had lost his bet by supporting Raila Odinga.
They concluded from their findings that Raila had been defeated justly and decisively. According to the article, the President was unable to persuade members of his own Kikuyu group to support his preferred candidate.
