IEBC tallies results st Bomas of Kenya
SUMMARY
  • On the 11th of August 2017, Kenya held its breath as IEBC prepared to announce the winner of the presidential election
  • The announcement has almost every Kenyan leader at Bomas of Kenya, with top dignitaries exchanging laughs and hugs before the moment of truth.

President Uhuru Kenyatta successfully retained his seat after defeating NASA leader Raila Odinga by a margin of over one million votes.
