Kenya Election: President Uhuru Kenyatta of Kenya has been declared winner of the polls the country had on the 8th.

An official announcement from the country’s electoral management body, the IEBC, has declared Uhuru as the winner after ammassing over 8 million votes while his closest contender Raila Odinga amassed close to 7 million votes.

Uhuru wins

In a system that Malawi is set to adopt in which the winner of a Presidential election is expected to get over 50% of the votes, Mr. Kenyatta got 54% of the votes.

In his speech, he has called on the opposition leader to work together with him.

However, leader of opposition Raila Odinga has since challenged the results and is highly expected to go to court to lodge a complaint.

  1. Mu Africa mkungovutika kuvota. Simzasangapo munthu wakumtima kwanu. Nthawi zonse amalamula ndi amené waposa mmabedwe. Democracy ndi yakuAmerica. Anthu akudafe tizipikisana ufiti ndi kuba basi

  2. Mind you Kenya is so different to other African countries, tolerance is not there amongst tribes. Tribalism plays a big role and Kikuyu’s are in majority no matter what happens the Luas or Luos can not rule Kenya unless they revert into old system of dictatorial when we saw Daniel Arap Moi took over from late Uhuru’s father because Moi comes from a very small tribe that in these era of democracy he couldn’t have that chance to be president. The Odinga tribe are just freedom fighters for the Kikuyu’s to be presidents of Kenya and mark my words, Kenya tribalism is just too much, tribal remarks are heard elsewhere even in offices.

  3. Some comments on fb are very funny. Previously we saw an opposition party winning elections in a certain African country, the guys were flare up relating to what predicts our Malawian elections in 2019. Today, Kenya election results are declared that Uhuru Kenyatta has retained the seat, big mouths guys, the few haters have waggled their tails and vanished in thin air. They are nowhere seen within the vicinity. So because you were the first to celebrate the victory of elections in Ghana, Ivory Coast, Gambia,…and other countries. Now your friends are saying in 2019, it’ll be DPP again. MCP will waggle its tails and warm the same benches they are warming in parliament. Does that raise your hair on its roots? Forget about MIA. That’s a battle lost in the sponge. Unless MCP retains Richard Musowoya as running mate, their oracles will give them a nod.

    • Gerald Zungu or whatever your name is you have no right to tell MCP as to who should be the presidential candidate let alone the running mate. The issue of Sidik Mia seems to have sent a lot of shivers in DPP spine. Kuti a dpp zikuwaweni kwambiri MCP ikutenga ma parliamentary seats onse during the forth coming by elections. And 2019 will just be a walk over if dpp will maintain mr. ibu as the presidential candidate. Mind you people in Kenya have their own reasons to reinstate Kenyatta as the president and we Malawians have our own reasons to chose MCP and Dr. Chakwera for president in 2019.
