Ruto Gets Over 1,500 Votes In Raila's Polling Station

Raila Odinga's Kibra polling station has collected over 1,000 ballots for Deputy President William Ruto. Raila's Old Kibra Primary School in Nairobi, according to the IEBC portal, gave Ruto 1,947 votes. 2,632 people voted for Raila in the general election.

George Wajakoyah, the party's leader, received four votes, while Waihiga Mwaure received 16 votes. On Tuesday, 56.5% of Old Kibra Primary School students voted. When he arrived at the polls on Tuesday, Raila was greeted by enthusiastic cheers from his ardent fans.

Most people showed their fingers as proof of their participation in the democratic process, but a few did not. Despite this, just 4,000 of the 7,071 registered voters across 12 polling places came out to cast their ballots. The IEBC has uploaded the voting forms to its portal, and the tallying of votes is currently taking place in several locations.

Raila and Ruto appear to be neck-and-neck in the campaign for the presidency. There have been Forms 34A received by the IEBC so far from 44,768 polling places around the country. This information was current as of 12:39 p.m.

The documents have been posted on the commission's results website, where anyone can see them. However, the results from the polling locations have not been made public by the IEBC.

As of last night, IEBC Chairman Wafula Chebukati stated that his organization would total the votes after physically inspecting all Form 34As submitted.

The National Tallying Center in the Bomas of Kenya is expecting the returning officers to begin delivering the tangible documents.
