Vote counting for the Kenya’s Presidential election results continues at the IEBC national tallying centre at the Bomas of Kenya .According to the latest Kenya Presidential election results ,Uhuru Kenyatta is still leading the presidential race .However with many of the votes being disqualified ,the run off is more likely after Raila Odinga who was moving head to head with Uhuru Kenyatta for the first day of vote counting drawing closer and closer .
By 1am today Wednesday , 5.6 million votes had been counted: Uhuru had 2,789,900 valid votes (53.4 per cent), while Raila held onto 2,198,714 (42 per cent). More than 330,000 of the ballots counted were rejected as spoilt votes. Results from about 18,000 polling stations are pending according to the Standard Digital News .
IEBC Chairman Ahmed Issack Hassan last evening dismissed rumours that the apparently slow pace of releasing results was caused by a collapse of IEBC’s computer servers or lack of data backup.
“That is not true,” he said at news conference last evening. “The truth is that the results from polling stations delayed.” This, he added, was due to the large numbers of voters, the greater number of ballot papers and extensions to voting time to accommodate those in line at 5pm.
