Uhuru Meets Team Led By Fmr African President, Reveals What They Told Him About The Elections So Far

The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission is in the process of finalizing the tally of the results at the regional and national level. The result which is keeping Kenyans anxious is that of the Presidential race and is very crucial. Even though the IEBC and Kenyans at large want the process to be fastened, crucial steps such as verification of the documents should not be overlooked. This is to ensure that the whole process is transparent and credible.

The IEBC also allowed observers from regional and international organisations to come and they observed the whole process from the verification of voters to the counting and transmission of form 34As to Bomas. The accredited organisations include, the East Africa Community Observer Mission, the Intergovernmental Authority on Development, the European Union and many others.

Currently, there are also observers at the National Tallying Centre in the Bomas of Kenya who are keenly looking at the process that will determine the fifth president of Kenya.

Today, a team of election observers met President Uhuru Kenyatta at State House. This is according to a report by State House Kenya that read, "President Uhuru Kenyatta on Saturday met a team of election observers at State House, Nairobi who briefed him on their observations about the election process."

According to State House Kenya, the team was led by former Sierra Leone President Ernest Bai Koroma. They also briefed the President on their findings and they said that the electoral process has been relatively transparent and issued a positive report.

The observers who learnt a lot from the Kenyan elections vowed to share the good example of real democracy, institutional credibility, and upholding of the rule of law set during this period. We just hope that their finding is correct and the losers will either accept the results or seek other alternative channels to voice their dissatisfaction as laid out in the constitutions.
