IEBC on Saturday flagged 10,000 suspicious votes erroneously tallied in favour of Deputy President William Ruto from Kiambu Town Constituency.

 

 

 

Initially, the Commission announced DP Ruto of UDA as leading in the

 

 

Constituency with 51,050 votes against Raila’s 14,860 despite the total valid votes standing at 56,546.

 

Both David Mwaure and George Wajackoyah got 318 votes each.

 

 

 

The initial tally announced by Commissioner Justus Nyangaya on Saturday was 10,000 votes more than the votes cast.

 

 

 

This was however rectified after journalists raised the matter with the Commission.

 

 

 

Making the correction, Nyang’aya said Ruto got 41,050 instead of 51,050 votes as earlier declared.

 

“In form 34B there was an error, that was corrected in form 34C,” he explained.

 

 

“In Thindigwa Primary it was captured that 11 voted for Odinga instead of 111. That has been corrected in Form C.”
