Chebukati Sends Tough Message To Raila and Ruto Ahead of Announcing Results

According to IEBC chairman Wafula Chebukati, political parties were asked to wait to declare victories based on their parallel counting until the IEBC released its official results. Each contender is allowed to vote, and the results of the vote tally are kept a secret. Chebukati advised that no contender should declare victory prior to the August 9 announcement of the official results.

Kenyans are keenly interested in learning who will rule the nation for the next five years. The two front-runners in the race to succeed President Uhuru Kenyatta are former Prime Minister Azimio and Vice President William Ruto, both of whom are running on the Kenya Kwanza platform.

The official announcement of the presidential results will be made by IEBC chair Wafula Chebukati later today or tomorrow. However, he signaled that he wouldn't rush to declare the presidential results during his news conference yesterday in Kenya's Bomas region, citing the Constitution's requirement that the commission wait seven days before doing so.
