Nairobi – The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission has angrily come out to warn online and social media on cooked up election results. Through Francis Wanderi IEBC urges Kenyans to reject inauthentic reports on the social media platforms showing that the Azimio- One Kenya 2022 Presidential candidate Hon Raila Odinga was taking an early lead against Deputy President William Ruto, adding that the commission hasn’t published any of the Presidential election results as at 7:30 pm on Tuesday.
Speaking during an exclusive interview with Inooro Tv, Francis Wanderi has also cautioned Kenyans against consuming, sharing undersized reports while revealing that the correct Data from the IEBC will be located at it’s online portal in the coming hours after the counting and scanning of the forms 34A will be completed.
Speaking on announcing the overall outcome of the Presidential election, Wanderi said unlike in 2017 where the commission was in a hurry; a move that gave Nasa room to challenge the results, they will take their time to do through calculations, predicting that the exercise could take more than 4 days from Tuesday.
It should be recalled that the government of Kenya didn’t cut off social media and access to the internet, as it has been in other countries within the East African Community during elections.
