Kenya: Results From 68 Constituencies Awaited

Nairobi — Jubilee Presidential candidate Uhuru Kenyatta is still hovering around the 50 percent mark with results from 68 constituencies yet to be declared.

As at 12:50pm, Kenyatta was leading with 4,849,194 votes while CORD alliance presidential candidate Raila Odinga trailed him at 4,323,153 votes.

The IEBC commissioners later read out results from Jomvu, Kisauni, Mvita, Balambala, Seme and Mavoko constituencies but the outcome was yet to be added to the latest presidential tally.

Some party agents heckled the commissioners asking them not to announce the results unless their outcome was reflected on the IEBC screens at the Bomas of Kenya.

The commissioners however continued declaring the results and requested them to address their concerns through the right channel.

The issue is however being fixed by the commission's ICT experts.

The presidential results from the following constituencies have not yet been declared: Narok North, Narok South, Narok West, Belgut, Konoin, Navakholo, Ikolomani, Sabatia, Luanda, Webuye West, Tongaren, Teso North, Teso South, Funyula, Rangwe and Ndhiwa.
