"Sisi Tunaumia" Section of Uasin Gishu Residents Cry Over Presidential Results, Send Message to IEBC

A section of residents from Uasin Gishu County have called upon the Independent Electoral and Boundaries commission, IEBC led by their chair Wafula Chenbukati to hasten the tallying of the presidential votes following the August 9 general elections.

Speaking with KTN News on Saturday evening, the residents from Eldoret argued that most of those in businesses have been making loses since customers are not available, as everyone is awaiting the results of the presidency before they can resume their normal lives.

"We ask IEBC to move with speed and tell us who the president elect is, we will accept who wins whether it is Raila Odinga, or William Ruto because by the end of the day Kenya has to move forward."

"We are hurting in the past few days because our businesses have gone down as people are at home, and others traveled to their homes, and are yet to return, so Chebukati should just announce who has won," said some of the residents.

Most of them however expressed confidence that Deputy President William Ruto will emerge as the winner, saying that they voted for him, since they are confident that he will deliver on the Kenya Kwanza Alliance manifesto.

Uasin Gishu is Ruto's home county, and thus the residents have high expectations that he will be announced as President Uhuru Kenyatta's successor defeating his main rival of the Azimio La Umoja One Kenya Alliance, Mr Odinga.

They also expressed their satisfaction on how IEBC conducted the elections, saying that most of what was witnessed was a great milestone in the country's democracy, thus calling upon Kenyans to ensure peace prevails even after the president elect is made public.

Watch their remarks in this video.
