Kenyans online expressed varied reactions to the demand by the opposition that IEBC declares Raila Odinga the president-elect.
The opposition coalition Nasa in a press conference claimed to have information from “confidential sources at IEBC” who shared the “real” figures in the servers.
Nasa co-principal Musalia Mudavadi said Odinga garnered 8, 041, 726 against President Uhuru Kenyatta’s 7, 755, 428 votes.
Kenyans online reacted differently to the announcement;
KENYAN’S I PLEAD WITH YOU TO GO ON YOUR KNEES FOR OUR COUNTRY NOW.

NASA are really stretching their lies – the lie about hacking didn’t stick – now, they have declared themselves the winners
