Raila Odinga, the Azimio presidential candidate has taken an early lead. By 20:49 pm Raila led by a small margin against his competitor William Ruto. Raila has 50.59 while Ruto is at 48.91 percent. The figures keep shifting as time goes by.
One thing that has been noted by most observers is the low voter turnout. Central Kenya is one of the areas with voter apathy. The situation has been blamed on the fact that they lack a presidential candidate. The spirit of voting for their own has dwindled since 2017.
Supporters of the two top presidential candidates are anxious of the results. Each political faction is hoping to emerge the winner. The IEBC is yet to post verified percentage of voter turnout in the country as by the closure of voting.
Media stations are at their high gear to inform Kenyans of every statistic that they come across. This parallel tallying has been allowed by the IEBC.
