Sifuna's Tweet On Presidential Results Flagged

A tweet posted by ODM Secretary General Edwin Sifuna was identified as inappropriate by the social media platform Twitter.

Sifuna had given out a table with data in the tweet that he had sent out. The table showed that the presidential candidate for Azimio la Umoja had a lead of 51.96 percent.

According to the data, Deputy President William Ruto was in last place, receiving 47.28 percent of the vote.

As soon as the social media platform saw the specifics of the tweet, a disclaimer was posted, stating that the official results had not yet been declared by the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission.

During elections in Kenya, both the media and the candidates are permitted to undertake their own tallying of the votes.

The head of the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC), which in this case is Wafula Chebukati, is the only person authorized to declare a presidential election winner.
