Details Out on The Results Ruto's Parallel Tallying Center is Showing

An insider of the Kenya Kwanza alliance has claimed that they are ahead in the presidential race, even as Kenyans await the official pronouncement.

The official says that according to their own tally, Deputy President William Ruto is winning the race, and is ahead of the pack with 54 percent.

He told The Standard that they expect things to get even better, and the gap between Ruto and Azimio La Umoja's Raila Odinga to further widen.

This has been confirmed by Kenya Kwanza economic advisor David Ndii, who says that they are indeed tallying their results even though they are not releasing their own findings yet.

“We are certainly doing ours (tallying). But citizens should do theirs too. It is their election. The more the merrier,” he told the paper.

The economist, formerly an ally of Raila, has said that they are also looking for mistakes being made by the IEBC as they continue with their own counting.

“Candidates teams are not just tallying. We scrutinise, confirm IEBC form with our copy, document anomalies,” he is further quoted.

This follows earlier reports that the camp is very keenly watching the polls to block any attempts to unfairly deny Ruto if his win, if he secures victory.
