Leaders of the Azimio party, led by running mate Martha Karua, hinted that they will challenge the election results, which were announced after commotion at the Bomas of Kenya and a statement from four IEBC commissioners criticizing the outcome.

The national speech will be held in the Azimio media center in the Kenyatta International Convention Center (KICC) the day after William Ruto was named the winner of the election by the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission.
