Kenya Volleyball Federation’s National sports organizing secretary Ismail Chege has called upon Kenyans to be patient asserting that IEBC should be given time to do their work instead of panicking.
“Let us give IEBC time. Let’s wait for them so as to get the final results. Let there be no tension at the moment,” he told P Live.
Kenyan Premier League official GMT Ottieno, on the other hand has registered his disappointment with the pace of tallying but called for peace insisting that violence of any kind is not what sportsmen are for.
