Kenya Kwanza and Azimio la Umoja One Kenya Coalition leaders Wednesday night congregated at the Bomas of Kenya which is doubling up as the national tallying centre.
Leaders from the Azimio divide who camped at the national tallying centre include Suna East MP Junet Mohammed, Mombasa Governor Hassan Joho, Kitui Governor Charity Ngilu and Jubilee’s Kanini Kega who earlier conceded defeat.
Their Kenya Kwanza counterparts present included senators Kipchumba Murkomen (Elgeyo Marakwet), Aaron Cheruiyot (Kericho), former nominated MP Wilson Sossion, Ndindi Nyoro (Kiharu MP), Gladys Shollei (Uasin Gishu MP) and Nandi Governor Stephen Sang.
Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria was also present at the venue though he barely took a sit before Commissioner Juliana Cherera announced that the commission would not be issuing the third briefing of the day up until Thursday at 10 am.
Cherera in her brief announcement stated that the cancellation was to allow the commission to verify original Forms 34As.
According to the IEBC portal, 46,029 form 34A’s out of 46,229 had been reported as of 1.20 am. This accounts for 99.57 per cent.
Earlier, IEBC Chair Wafula Chebukati indicated that the commission was not going through the tallying process until they start receiving the original images of Form 34A and 34B from returning officers at the national tallying centre.
He explained that the commission must compare and verify uploaded forms before making the result official.
