From The IEBC Portal, Odinga got 836814 & DP Got 613924 Votes From 27 Constituencies- Ngunyi Alleges

In the just concluded last general elections, many Kenyans have now known their newly elected political leaders in different elective political positions as MCAs, MPs, Senators, Women Reps and Governors.

Those political leaders who won the above mentioned political seats will rule in their respective public offices for a period of five years. This follows the Kenyan constitution that allows political leaders to hold public offices for a period of five years before another general election is conducted.

In the race to succeed President Kenyatta which appeared to be very tough between the Azimio La Umoja-One Kenya Alliance flag bearer Honorable Raila Amollo Odinga and his counterpart the Kenya Kwanza Alliance flag bearer Honorable William Samoei Ruto was finally concluded.

According to the presidential results that were released by the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission boss Mr Wafula Chebukati, the Kenya Kwanza Alliance flag bearer Honorable William Samoei Ruto was declared a the President-elect.

The Azimio La Umoja-One Kenya Alliance rejected Ruto's victory and as a result, they have today filed a petition at the Supreme Court of Kenya to challenge Ruto's win.

This means should the Supreme Court nullifies the presidential election, then Kenyans will be forced to conduct a repeat election.

As Kenyans are eagerly waiting for the Supreme Court's verdict, Odinga's Azimio ally alleges that the IEBC didn't include results from 27 constituencies.

In his official Twitter Handle, professor Mutahi Ngunyi alleges that from the IEBC portal, Raila got 836814 votes and Ruto got 613924 from the 27 constituencies that were not included.

In his calculations that he claimed that the voters turnout was 15,663,768, Mutahi said that Ruto led by 49.7% of the total votes cast against Odinga who got 49.6 of the total votes cast.
