George Wajackoyah, the leader of the Roots Party, and David Mwaure, a representative of the Agano coalition, both showed up at the Bomas of Kenya auditorium before the formal announcement of the presidential results.
The IEBC will likely announce the results of the elections held on August 9 after a five-day process of verifying the results. On Monday morning, none of the Bomas of Kenya's fifteen verification tables were in use.
After completing their papers, only a handful of clerks sit at the few remaining tables and speak quietly to one another. By 9 a.m., every seat in the auditorium had been taken, both in Azimio and Kenya Kwanza.
Even though Wajackoyah has pledged to keep running until the very end, Mwaure was the first contender to concede the race on Sunday.
While the tallying process was still on on Sunday at the Bomas of Kenya, Mwaure informed reporters that it was evident that his bid had not acquired sufficient support to award him the win.
Mwaure, along with his vice presidential candidate, Ruth Wambui Mucheru, declared his support for William Ruto after the current vote tally showed a picture of a Ruto victory.
I support William Ruto's ascendancy and his candidacy, and I call on the IEBC to declare him the winner when the time comes.
For his part, Wajackoyah issued a statement through his party's general secretary, Adam Kadernani, expressing confidence in his party's ability to win the election and carry out the policies that will, he claims, transform the country into an economic superpower.
He promised to address the country after the commission made its final announcement of results.
We know we can prevail in a transparent, open, and honest system. Following the IEBC's formal announcement, our candidate will deliver a national address.
