“Hustler-in-chief” William Ruto wins presidential election in Kenya

213

The head of Kenya’s election body on Monday declared Deputy President William Ruto the winner of the country’s close-fought presidential election, despite several commissioners rejecting the results.

The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission chairman Wafula Chebukati said Ruto had won almost 7.18 million votes (50.49 percent) against 6.94 million (48.85 percent) for his rival Raila Odinga in the August 9 vote.

Ruto succeeds outgoing President Uhuru Kenyatta who did not support his candidacy. Kenyatta is in the twilight of his presidency and will leave office later in August.

Earlier Monday his rival Raila Odinga’s coalition rejected the yet to be announced results by Kenya’s Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC).

The national tallying center descended into chaos shortly after Odinga’s coalition rejected the results, with fighting breaking out and chairs being thrown in the building.

The country’s electoral commission was split over the results of the country’s election, as four officials disowned the commission’s Chairman Wafula Chebukati’s results, officials said at a separate press conference.

The IEBC’s vice chair Juliana Cherera was among those disputing the results.

During the campaign, Ruto described himself as the “hustler-in-chief,” citing his humble beginnings as a chicken seller who fought his way up to the top of Kenyan politics.
