Raila Odinga is contesting election results

The National Super Alliance (Nasa) has disputed preliminary presidential results as released by the electoral commission.

Presidential candidate Raila Odinga early Wednesday termed the outcome that saw him trail Uhuru Kenyatta by more than one million votes as “sham, fictitious and fake”.

His opponent and incumbent President Uhuru Kenyatta maintained a slight lead through the night.

Mr Odinga said the results were the “work of a computer” and did not reflect the will of voters, a claim denied by the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission.

He asked Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission to provide forms 34A and 34B to help verify the outcome.

With just over 70% of the total votes counted, incumbent Kenyatta was Wednesday morning edging closer to victory, leading his closest contender with about 1.4million votes.

Kenyatta enjoyed a big cushion at the start of the counting but the gap between him and ODM’s Raila Odinga kept shrinking through the night.

The last update at 8:20 AM on the IEBC website gave the ruling Jubilee candidate 7407589 votes which is equivalent (54.64%) votes.

The opposition National Super Alliance candidate is closely following with 6034295 votes representing (44.51%) of the total results tallied.

The above results are from 36388 out of 40883 polling stations that have sent their results to the National Tallying Centre in capital Nairobi.
