Raila Rejects Presidential Results, Terms It As Null & Void.

Raila Odinga, the leader of Azimio la Umoja, has contested the results of the presidential election that were released by Wafula Chebukati, the chair of the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC).

Chebukati announced William Ruto of the Kenya Kwanza Alliance as the winner after he received 7,176,141 votes, or 50.49% of the total votes cast.

With 6,942,930 votes, or 48% of the total cast, Raila received the runner-up position.

But in a speech on Tuesday, August 16, the disgruntled Raila declared he will appeal the findings to the Supreme Court.

The former prime minister said that Chebukati's results were invalid.

This has just come in, following Vice Chair Juliana's recent announcement of additional information regarding the yesterday's presidential results.

Juliana has revealed through her statement that the results did not, as required by law, accurately reflect the actual number of voters who were registered in the nation. As 0.01%, or 142,000 votes, exceeds the 100 percent mark, she has also emphasized that the results were above average.
