David Mwaure concedes defeat in Presidential race
Mr Mwaure, in a statement on Sunday, admitted defeat saying that he has observed a low performance in the votes he has garnered so far as the vote verification is ongoing at the Bomas of Kenya.
The presidential candidate, therefore, endorsed his competitor William Ruto, claiming that he has taken a consistent lead in the vote numbers and that the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) should announce him as president.
"I wish to concede defeat in the presidential elections if 2022 whose verification is ongoing at Bomas. This I am doing after seeing what my performance has been and after discussions with my team in Bomas," read part of the statement.
The Agano party leader further thanked his supporters for backing his bid during the polls further urging the IEBC to remain steadfast to ensure that the ongoing exercise is verifiable and seamless.
"I thank my family, secretariat, the campaign team and all those who voted and prayed for us," said Mwaure.
"I wish to call on IEBC to be firm, steadfast and resolute on its task and mandate and announce the leading winner of the presidential election."
Mwaure's bowing out leaves three candidates in the ring who are eyeing the country's top seat.
The are Azimio la Umoja's Raila Odinga, Kenya Kwanza's William Ruto and George Wajackoyah of Roots party.
