Election results update (1) 10:45 pm Kenya Time

First to address some of the questions asked in the comments:
– The missing names situation in Kibera was a result of a split register. This means that voters were reallocated to different areas within the polling station depending on their last name – this is done in areas where there is a high number of voters to prevent overcrowding in one classroom / voting both – so e.g. in Kibera where there are lots of As, Os etc guys with names starting with O are split and some people moved to where the people with the last name B are voting…hope this makes sense, kind of hard to explain in writing. So guys were going by the last names and when they get to the voting booth/classrom there names are not on that particular list but in the list where e.g. the B guys are. Problem is that no one bothered to explain this to guys beforehand and by the time they were trying to explain guys thought it was a plot to rig and rejected the plan to make voting more efficient. Voting was suspended until the original (non-split) list was obtain from Anniversary towers.

– Haven’t heard anything about Asians fleeing the country.

– The appointment of judges was definitely a case of stacking, but with all the attention focused on the election is barely registered with guys – the unfortunate result of an uber-strong President.

Provisional results from Nation TV – Note only 1% of the vote has been counted.

Kibaki leading with 51.% while Raila has 45.3% (KTN reporting a Raila lead – 53,911 vs 41,266)

1. Western – 74% Raila, 25% Kibaki
2. Nairobi – no results in yet
3. North Eastern – no results yet

    Thanks for confirming what i have been telling my buddies. I guess with the stakes so high and ECK not explaining ASAP, it sure looked like rigging…

  • Mimi

  • Watu

    People should stop mere fabrcations, if there is rigging results would be unfolding in a different manner. It doesn’t take to be a brain surgeon to note the transparency level in the elections.

    :razz:good job ory,some of us in china need your updates very much

    Story of Asians fleeing is a mis-interpretation of the BBC swahili radio broadcast that interviewed Tanzanian minister for immigration, who stated that crossings at Kenyan/Tz border showed a disproportionately higher number of asians. He however noted that overall numbers of people crossing is the same as average. He also noted that the trend is consistent with what always happens during elections. A lot of Asians stayed and voted in Nairobi (mostly westlands) and in Mombasa. Just to inform you…majority of Kenyans of Asian desent are hindu and muslim. Let us be inclusive and build a united country.

    I live in Seattle washington and I have been checking the election updates . I feel democracy has taken root in Kenya and a blessing to see people vote their leaders. The blog had been quite informative.

  • No Matter the results kenya has lost a number of years in its growth. as the looting seen in kisumu, kibera would have still gone on for sometime. it time kenyans looked at them selves for solution instead of politician who are now enjoying peace in their huge manson as poor burn their shant homes its a sad situation.
