Voting in Uganda took place at the Kenya High Commission and the Kenya results were announced by the presiding officer, Jackline.
Odinga supporters in Uganda celebrated the win of their candidate.
Despite the win, vote counting is currently taking place in Kenya and so far, Kenyatta is leading with a 54% win as opposed to Odinga’s 41%. It is not yet clear how the Kenya electoral commission is going to incorporate the votes of Kenyans in the diaspora who voted, or if they are going to be considered at all, or if they are being considered at this time.
