Kenya Prepares For Final Election Results

Supporters of opposition presidential candidate Raila Odinga shout and brandish sticks during a protest in the Mathare slums of Nairobi on Wednesday.

In an unexpected turn of events, the National Super Alliance presidential candidate, Raila Odinga, showed up at the Bomas of Kenya national tallying center on Friday, August 11. That lent strong impetus to what will now nearly certainly be another official victory for incumbent President Uhuru Kenyatta and his Jubilee coalition. That claim echoed one made by Odinga shortly after the voting.

In 2013, Odinga took his concerns to court.

"As NASA (opposition coalition) we shall not be party to the process they are about to make", senior opposition official Musalia Mudavadi told reporters.

Inside sources with intimate details of the tussle between NASA and the IEBC tel TUKO.co.ke that the opposition brigade continues to demand the electoral body iron out all issues highlighted before declaring the victor of the presidential election.

"I don't control anybody".

Election observers were dismayed by NASA's posture.

"We urge calm. Those who (are) aggrieved should go to court", said Bishop Arap Korir. "The IEBC must be fully accountable".

Kenya's shilling firmed and bond prices rose on early results, before retreating in the wake of the claims by Odinga, who is seen as less pro-business than Kenyatta. But none of them seemed too impressed. They all urged the IEBC to do so.

Election officials are trying to confirm their provisional results showing Kenyatta in the lead with checks of documents from polling stations nationwide.

Chiloba also went ahead to assure Kenyans that the manner in which the system was set meets the highest level of integrity, and Kenyans should indeed trust the process.

"The process that was put in place is proving its value thus far", Kerry said.

Though some things need to be corrected, these were minor. "So by paper ballots, there is a protection of each and every Kenyan's vote".

Kerry stressed that the election was not over as the manual verification of the electronic results was still under way. He previously said the election commission's computer network had been hacked and that results were "fictitious". It is their hopes for the future that are on the line. He also called for other candidates and observers to be given access to the servers. "The streets do not".

More election observers on Thursday termed the recent presidential and parliamentary polls in Kenya as credible, throwing a spanner in the works of the country's opposition which claims the entire exercise was fraught with irregularities.

It said NASA's complaints that the electronic system had been hacked were "serious allegations that need serious scrutiny".

He said it is only the IEBC that will announce the victor.

Schaake was asked in an interview if this approach meant that the European Union had full confidence in the integrity and competence of the IECB.

In the southwestern town of Siaya, a police officer speaking on condition of anonymity said a man had been shot dead in protests, but "we have not managed to collect the body. because of resistance from protesters".

She stressed, like Mbeki, that they are "observers, not investigators".

The alliance's "outright declaration that Odinga is the rightful victor raises the risk of further violence in opposition areas should the IEBC confirm Kenyatta's victory", Emma Gordon, an analyst at Bath, England-based Verisk Maplecroft, said in an emailed note.

Amid the anxiety over how the situation would unfold, there was also much joy in Kenyatta's strongholds after he was declared the victor with 54.27 percent to Odinga's 44.74.
