Security has been beefed up at Bomas of Kenya as IEBC prepares to shortly announce presidential results for the 2017 general elections.

On Friday morning IEBC announced that they had received 270 of the 290 result form 34Bs and was awaiting the remaining 20.

The commission held that the winner shall be announced after all the form 34B are received and verified in the presence of all the political party agents.

Earlier, NASA leaders claimed that alleged hacking into the IEBC system denied Raila votes, and demanded for the commission to announce Raila as President.

Kenyans have had to wait for the IEBC to receive forms 34A and 34Bs from all polling stations, in order for them to announce the winner of the presidential race.

According to IEBC Chair Wafula Chebukati, hacking was attempted on IEBC's system but was unsuccessful. Also, he clarified that the presidential results transmitted on screen and on the website, were not official until the IEBC gave final figures.
