The government has warned Kenyans against publishing content on social media that might cause tension in the country.
Acting Interior CS Fred Matiang’i has requested the public to stay calm, focused on IEBC’s statement on the tallying process.
The CS dismissed claims of unrest in sections of the republic.
He said no incident had been observed by law enforcement authorities further promising Kenyans that the government was well prepared to offer adequate security as the tallying process continues. Matiang’i pledged to back the IEBC when situation calls for governments support.
Provisional presidential results displayed on the commission’s website to the public indicate President Uhuru Kenyatta is ahead of his closest rival Raila Odinga by at least 1.3 million votes.
Latest stats by the IEBC today afternoon put the incumbent Kenyatta at 7,814,045 votes while opposition chief Raila Odinga at 6,433,166.
The results have already been disputed by the National Super Alliance’s presidential candidate Raila Odinga.
While addressing the press earlier today morning, Odinga stated that the results displayed by the Wafula Chebukati led agency were fake and a representation of an artificial error, deliberately programmed by hackers to give Jubilee’s side an advantage.
