IEBC to make final announcement today [Time and Details]

President Uhuru Kenyatta's security was spotted at the Bomas of Kenya.

Sources at the National Tallying Centre (Bomas), told PulseLive.co.ke that the IEBC Chairman Wafula Chebukati will make the much waited announcement at around 2 pm.

Last night, the IEBC Deputy Chairperson Consolata Nkatha Maina revealed that the commission had received all the physical forms 34B that have since been verified.

The final tally showed President Uhuru Kenyatta had garnered 7,483,895 votes which accounted for 98.3 percent of the 7,616,217 valid votes that were cast.

NASA leader Raila Odinga emerged a poor second with 73,228 votes.

The presence of close handlers of President Kenyatta as well as heightened security at the Bomas of Kenya confirmed that the head of state would soon be making his presence at the scene to collect his certificate. The second time he will be doing it this year.

Commissioners at the electoral body are currently holed up in a meeting where they are reportedly considering the legal implications of making the announcement before a number of constituencies have had a chance to vote.

Last week, IEBC on two occasions suspended voting in 26 constituencies after the security situation deteriorated.

It remains unclear the legal implications of making the final announcement before elections have been held in all constituencies,
