Nairobi, Kenya | THE INDEPENDENT |
Chaos broke out at the Bomas of Kenya after a delayed announcement of Kenya’s Presidential election results.  Security whisked away IEBC chair Wafula Chebukati.

Three hours after the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) was supposed to announce the final results of Kenya’s Presidential elections, guests and officials were still waiting at The Bomas of Kenya.

Azimo La Umoja’s spokesman  Saitabao Ole Kanchory said they are yet to sign forms 34C (see details below) because they do not see IEBC chairman Wafula Chebukati. Kanchory says he is avoiding them.

They said Raila Odinga will only attend the function after they have signed the forms. The forms are the final legal documents confirming the election winner.

Soon after, the vice-chair of the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission, Juliana Cherera (photograph above), made an announcement at Serena Hotel in Nairobi disputing the results Chebukati declared.

“We cannot take ownership of the results that will be announced because of the opaque nature of how the last phase has been handled,” Cherera told journalists.
