True or false? Fact-checking election updates

Through his Facebook and Instagram accounts, Korir thanked his constituents for the opportunity to serve for the last five years. He congratulated Phelix Odiwour aka Jalang'o for being the projected winner who was leading in the tally as of Wednesday morning.

"To the people of Lang'ata, I sincerely thank you for according me an opportunity to be your Member of Parliament for the last 5 years. It's been a great opportunity that gave me an avenue to contribute to our nation-building and service to the people," he said.

Kibe's claims that Jalang'o had lost the election were false. However, IEBC, the commission mandated to announce the winner of any elective post has not yet declared the winner of the Lang'ata MP seat.

A spot check by The Standard on both of the contestants' unofficial tallying centres has shown that Jalang'o is leading in the 145,649-vote-rich constituency.

Both Jalang'o and Korir declined to comment on this fact-checking story.
