Details leaks On Number Of Counties Dp Ruto And Raila Are Controlling According To Latest Reports

Kenyans have continued to wait patiently for the Independent Elections and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) to announce the results of the presidential election in three days. But the race was still close, with only a very small gap between the first two. Even as the IEBC tried to get the results out as quickly as possible, tensions between the two sides, who both claimed victory, were rising. Even yesterday, when the Azimio camp began setting up the KICC stage for the party, this was clear.

At the Catholic University of East Africa, their partner from Kenya, Kwanza, was also getting ready for the announcement. By law, a candidate can only be called "president-elect" if he gets 50% plus one vote and a majority of the votes in at least 25 counties.

According to the IEBC website, Raila Odinga passed the first test in his current position. He got the most support from 29 counties, while Ruto only got support from 18.

Kenyans are still waiting for official information from the IEBC, but there are signs that Wafula Chebukati could announce the results today and put an end to the worry that most Kenyans are feeling.
