Kenya's capital city, Nairobi is the strategic devolved unit for any national government to control, with billions of shillings at the governor's disposal.
The tribal affiliations are a big factor in the Governor’s race which also influenced their choice of running mate's.
Now according to a news report by TV47, Johnson Sakaja leading in three constituencies with 136,739 votes followed by Polycarp Igathe with 98,219.
There was however, a stand off at the main tallying centre over claims of voter bribery, in what paralysed the tallying process before it resumed.
The final results will be declared by the Returning Officer at the end of the tallying exercise.
