New details of Jubilee's parallel tallying centres emerge

Jubilee has done it like Nasa during the August 8 polls.

Just like it was the case for National Super Alliance in the bungled August 8 polls, President Uhuru Kenyatta led Jubilee party is purportedly running a parallel tallying centres across the country to “protect their votes.”

Nairobi’s Roysambu Constituency lawmaker Wahienya Ndirangu who was allegedly overseeing the tallying in his constituency quipped that the results they had matched the final numbers announced by IEBC Returning officer Mr Emmanuel Onyango.

Meanwhile, final tallies have been received in various constituencies, including: Ainabkoi, Baringo Central, Buuri, Eldama Ravine, Embakasi North, Emurua Dikirr, Endebess, Gatundu South, Igembe Central, Igembe North, Ikolomani, Isiolo South, Kaiti, Kajiado Central, Kajiado North, Kapseret, Kesses, Kiminini, Kirinyaga Central, Kuresoi South, Kwanza, Lunga Lunga, Makueni, Malindi, Masinga, Mwatate, Nambale, Narok East, Ndia, Nyeri Town, Roysambu, Saboti, Saku, Soy, Thika, Tigania East, Tinderet, Turbo and Voi, Wajir North, Wundanyi.

Incumbent Jubilee’s Uhuru Kenyatta is leading in most of the constituencies and at the time of publishing this article,  he was leading with over 2.3 million against Mr Odinga who has less than 30,000 votes. Mr Odinga quit the race and formed the National Resistance Movement hours to the protected exercise.
