Kenyan’s electoral head has admitted he feels the process of verifying results from Tuesday’s vote is taking too long.
Wafula Chebukati’s comments come nearly three days after polls closed, with the outcome of the presidential election still not known.
He blamed party agents for slowing things down as results sent digitally are matched to paper originals.
Media tallies show the two leading candidates – Raila Odinga and William Ruto are neck to neck.
But it is only the electoral commission that can declare the winner – and it has seven days to do so.
Earlier the electoral chief emphasized there was no need to panic when seeing differences in tallying numbers as they would look similar in the end. ENDS
