Today, IEBC has again admitted that one of their presiding officers at the polling station committed an error when entering the figures for Raila Odinga as 11 instead of 111. This error has almost costed the Azimio coalition flag bearer 100 votes from a single polling station situated in Thindigua Primary School in Kiambu constituency. The electoral body has moved fast to rectify this error after an hawk eyed Azimio la Umoja agent raised concerns again.

"Thindigua Primary school polling station captured Azimio candidate Raila Odinga’s votes as 11 instead of 111; this means Odinga got 14, 860 as opposed to 14, 760 votes recorded in Kiambu constituency’s Form 34B."
