With Election results taking about a week in Kenya, finally Deputy President William Ruto has been declared the winner of Kenya’s closely-fought presidential election with 50.49% of the vote after a long wait that has put the nation on edge.
Wafula Chebukati, the chairman of Kenya’s Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC), made the announcement earlier today monday 15th August after the election commission’s deputy chairperson and three other commissioners disowned the presidential election results.
Why the deputy and 3 other commissioners disowned the results is still not clear and there is alot of controversy surrounding the release of the results. Although most people expected Raila to win, Ruto was also a favourite for victory and it seem the dreams of Wajackoyah to begin his snakefarming in Kenya would have to wait a bit more longer, a couple of years.
What happens next and would the stated outcome be accepted and peace maintained
