According to Mureithi, everybody will be surprised to know what is in the report after the scrutiny process.

Mureithi who contested for the seat on a Jubilee ticket stated that, he had decided to hold his celebrations until the final announcement is given on Friday.

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.

Mr Mureithi argued that the intimidations that Owino adduced to his supporters violated their absolute rights to vote.

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.
