Azimio la Umoja One Kenya Coalition luminaries and their Kenya Kwanza counterparts Wednesday night visited the Bomas of Kenya where final tabulation of presidential results was ongoing.

The Bomas of Kenya is the national tallying centre of the August 9 general election.

Leaders from the Azimio team who visited the centre include Suna East MP Junet Mohammed and Mombasa Governor Hassan Joho.

Kitui Governor Charity Ngilu was also present.

Their Kenya Kwanza counterparts present include senators Kipchumba Murkomen (Elgeyo Marakwet), Aaron Cheruiyot (Kericho) and former nominated MP Wilson Sossion.

Others are MPs Ndindi Nyoro (Kiharu), Gladys Shollei (Uasin Gishu MP) and Nandi Governor Stephen Sang among others.

IEBC chairman Wafula Chebukati was expected to issue his third press briefing since the start of the tallying process but the presser was called off.

Commissioner Juliana Cherera said this was to allow the commission to verify original Forms 34As that had been uploaded to the public portal.

"So ladies and gentlemen, be patient the next brief will be done tomorrow morning," Cherera said.

Forms 34A are used to capture election results from polling centres at the constituency level.

Presiding officers are required to take a picture of the original copies and send them to the public portal.

Results from all polling centres in a given constituency are then tabulated on Forms 34Bs by constituency returning officers.

As at 10.30pm Wednesday, provisional results by the Star indicated that Azimio's Raila Odinga was leading with 4,008,731 votes against UDA's William Ruto who had 3.988,182 votes out of 8,050,686 ballots counted. 

Roots Party leader George Wajackoyah had 35,338 while Agano Party's David Waihiga had 18,435.

The Star was updating the tally every half and hour based on results captured in Forms 34As at the constituency tallying centres.
