On Monday, reports emerged showing the final numbers in vote recount where, Owino had garnered 46,817 votes against 42,501 votes garnered by his main rival Francis Mureithi.

The final vote recount tally was signed by High Court Deputy Registrars Esther Mburu and Mbayaki Wafula.

Confusion

There was confusion last week as both Owino and his rival Mureithi declared themselves victors in the Vote recount.

On January 12 2017, the High Court ordered recount and scrutiny of all votes cast in the parliamentary race during the August 8 election in Embakasi East.

Election petition

The ruling was made in an election petition filed by Owino's opponent from the Jubilee Party, Francis Mureithi.

The vote recount revealed slightly higher figures than those used to determine the parliamentary race during the August 8 elections.

During last year's election, Owino was declared the winner with 46,587 votes against Mureithi's 42,253.
