2022 Election results: Verification of presidential results ongoing at Bomas of Kenya

The counting and tallying of votes cast on the August 9th General Election is ongoing across the country for the various elective positions, even as chaotic scenes rock vote tallying in some of the hotly contested areas.
In a presser on Wednesday, August 10, the IEBC chairman said some 14,164,651 voters voted on Tuesday, August 9; representing a 64.5 per cent voter turnout.  However, Chebukati noted that the figure excluded voters who were identified using manual register in select regions where the KIEMS kits failed.

“From the kits that were transmitted, the voter turnout is 65.4%. This figure will go higher once we compute the verification of turnout in areas that used manual voting. That figure will go up,” he said.

Presidential live updates of the results have begun streaming in at the national tallying centre at the Bomas of Kenya, with the chairman Wafula Chebukati saying that the commission will tally the results after verifying the physical forms 34As.

He has however, urged presidential agents to refrain from interrogating returning officers since it is slowing down the results verification process. He noted that the commission intends to wind up on the process but agents are stalling their pace.

“We’re not moving as fast as we should. This process should be concluded as soon as possible. We advise that agents cannot proceed in the manner that which we are proceeding, its as if we are doing a forensic audit,” said Chebukati.

He warned that any agent found indulging in the cautioned activity will be dismissed from their premise.
