Kenya :Results stream in as tallying continues

Results are streaming in at the National Tallying Centre in Bomas of Kenya with the electoral agency saying it has so far received 36,769 forms 34A and 57 forms 34B.

Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) Chairman Wafula Chebukati in a post on his Twitter account said the forms have been posted on the public portal.

“As our ROs receive form 34A’s and tabulate them to produce 34B, our verification team is working pari passu to ensure the numbers add up,” he said in another post.

The IEBC also said its Returning officers have started arriving at Bomas with hard copies of results they sent electronically.

The tallying of votes is also underway in most constituency centres countrywide a day after the repeat presidential election.

In a press briefing Thursday, Mr Chebukati had said voter turnout was estimated at 48 per cent by 5pm.

He said 35,564 polling stations opened on Thursday.

Balloting was mainly peaceful on Election Day in the poll boycotted by the main opposition coalition, the National Super Alliance (Nasa).

However, the turnout was low in most polling stations as compared to the August 8 General Election, whose presidential poll was quashed by the Supreme Court, citing “illegalities and irregularities”.src nation
