We have no plans to declare president-elect tonight – IEBC

The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) has refuted claims that it plans to declare the winner of the presidential vote later Wednesday night.

IEBC attributed the rumour an SMS making rounds among Kenyans.

As at 5:45pm, President Uhuru Kenyatta (Jubilee) was leading with 7,963,336 votes representing 54.34 per cent, ahead of Raila Odinga (NASA) who had garnered 6569800 votes -44.79 per cent.

Mr Odinga has since disputed the results saying the IEBC database had been hacked.
