Commentators now expect a petition to be filed at Kenya’s Supreme Court, following Raila Odinga’s public rejection of the presidential result.
They have until Monday – seven days after the election result – to do so.
Mr Odinga left the press conference in Nairobi having strongly criticised the electoral commission chairman, accusing him of handling the polls like a dictator and a bully.
He also accuses the electoral chairman of bullying election counters who disagreed with him.
Meanwhile, the vice-chairperson of Kenya’s election commission Juliana Cherera was one of the four commissioners who refused to endorse the results of the presidential results announced on Monday.
She claimed that if you added the percentages as announced by the chairperson of the commission, Wafula Chebukati, the sum came to 100.01%. END
