IEBC on Saturday erroneously announced extra 10,000 votes for Deputy President William Ruto in Kiambu Town Constituency.

The error was however detected and the correct figure was announced after the journalists raised the issue.

Initially, the Commission announced DP Ruto of UDA was leading in the Constituency with 51,050 votes against Raila's 14,860 despite the total valid votes standing at 56,546.

Both David Mwaure and George Wajackoyah got 318 votes each.

The initial tally announced by Commissioner Justus Nyangaya on Saturday was 10,000 votes more than the votes cast.

Making the correction, Nyang'aya said Ruto got 41,050 instead of 51,050 votes as earlier declared.

"In form 34B there was an error, that was corrected in form 34C," he explained.

"In Thindigwa Primary it was captured that 11 voted for Odinga instead of 111. That has been corrected in Form C."
