Raila Odinga Conspicuously Missing At Elections Results tallying centre, team cites electoral malpractices for absence; Ruto Leads by 51%

Kenyans are asking on social media about the whereabouts of one of the main presidential candidates, Raila Odinga.

Mr. Odinga was conspicuously missing at the National tallying centre for the Kenyan presidential elections results.

The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission is expected to announce the results of the August 9, 2022 presidential election any time today, August 15.

But Mr. Odinga is yet to arrive at the national tallying centre unlike his main rival William Ruto.

Mr. Odinga is reported to still be inside his compound in the Karen suburb of Nairobi.

Meanwhile, the Chief election agent of Mr. Odinga, Saitabao Kanchory has told journalists that his team has not been able to verify some of the results and therefore would not ask their presidential candidate to come to the tallying centre.

Mr. Kanchory made this known in a new briefing that was partly relayed on local broadcasters, alleging that there were some electoral malpractices.

Announcement

Kenya’s Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission was expected to announce the resilys at the national tallying centre in capital Nairobi at 3pm (12:00 GMT). But the announcement has been delayed.

Results tallied by the local media so far show Vice President William Ruto is leading with 51 percent of the votes, compared with 48 percent for opposition leader Raila Odinga, who is supported by outgoing President Uhuru Kenyatta.

The media cited official counts from about 80 percent of constituencies.
