Results trickling in at Bomas of Kenya, returning officers arrive with hard copies of results

Returning officers for the October 26 repeat Presidential poll have started arriving at the Bomas of Kenya national tallying centre with hard copy results they sent electronically.

IEBC in a tweet on Friday said: “[They are] arriving with hard copies of the results they sent electronically.”

This is even as tallying of votes continues in polling centres across the country.

Additionally results continue to stream in at the constituency tallying centres across the country.

Earlier, IEBC Chair Wafula Chebukati in another tweet said they have received 36,769 forms 34A and 57 forms 34B, which have been posted on the public portal.

The turnout for the repeat Presidential polls according to Chebukati is estimated at 48 per cent.

About 35,564 polling stations opened on Thursday.

Hitherto, only the following constituencies have received the final results: Tigania East, Tinderet, Nyeri Town, Thika, Kapseret, Kesses, Kirinyaga Central, Kwanza, Lunga Lunga, Makueni, Ainabkoi, Baringo Central, Buuri, Embakasi North, Emurua Dikirr, Endebess, Gatundu South, Igembe Central, Igembe North, Ikolomani, Isiolo South, Kaiti, Kajiado Central, Saboti, Saku, Soy and Wundayi.

With the results that have trickled in already, the turnout has been projected to be below 35 per cent.

However, President Uhuru Kenyatta is optimistic of a second round of victory after his victory was nullified by the Supreme Court on September 1.
