After a five-day of wait, Kenyans will know their next president today.
In an invite, Kenya's electoral agency, Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC), said the announcement will be made at 3 PM (EAT) at Bomas of Kenya in Nairobi.
All presidential aspirants, their agents and leaders allied to their parties are expected in Bomas.
By the time of publication of this article, two aspirants, George Wajakhoya and David Mwaure, had already arrived. William Ruto and Raila Odinga are also expected.
Until now, there is no clear information on who the winner is, with some sources indicating that Odinga is ahead and others showing that it is Ruto.
Out of 22 million registered voters, only 14 million voted on the August 9 elections.
A winner is required to garner 50+1 per cent of the total votes cast and at least 25 per cent from 25 out of 47 counties.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
