Uhuru expected at Bomas of Kenya – PHOTOS
Uhuru Kenyatta is set to go to the IEBC national tallying centre at the Bomas of Kenya where the winner of the presidential election will be announced.
Already, protocol officials are at hand to receive the head of state who is leading in the provisional results released by the commission.
As at 10:53am, Friday, President Kenyatta was leading with 8,170,016 votes (54.26 per cent) against Nasa candidate Raila Odinga’s 6754173 votes (44.85 per cent).
Mr Odinga has disputed the results and demanded that he be declared winner.
The Daily Nation reporter John Ngirachu reports seeing the protocol officials carrying what appears to be the presidential seat.
It was taken towards a lounge designated for presidential candidates.
A number of top Jubilee officials were also seen chatting away outside Bomas of Kenya, where security seems to have been fortified. A red carpet has also been rolled out.
Several diplomats have also arrived.
Reports indicate that since he left Nairobi on Monday evening, President Kenyatta has been in his Ichaweri family home in Gatundu from where he has been monitoring events.
His deputy William Ruto is also in his Sugoi home.
On Thursday IEBC chairman Wafula Chebukati said the commission expects to have received all form 34B by Friday noon, after which they’ll declare the winner.
