Uhuru won 50.07% of votes cast and at least 25% in a minimum of 32 constituencies. At 51 Uhuru becomes the youngest president of Kenya.
In announcing the winner the IEBC applauded the media for its exemplary behaviour in handling the election with ‘modesty and professionalism’.
We congratulate Kenyatta on his win as well as the people of Kenya on a peaceful election.
What happens with Odinga now? We have no idea. All we know is that the west will be twitching a bit now given that they want to have Uhuru hung by its International Criminal Court.
Fun times ahead!
