Kalonzo: Nobody should have conceded defeat in Central Kenya

Wiper Party leader Kalonzo Musyoka.

Wiper party leader Kalonzo Musyoka now says that candidates who conceded defeat in the Central Kenya region should not have done so before the results were announced.

According to Kalonzo, the candidates should have remained patient and wait for an official announcement of results from the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) because "they have the true numbers".

Speaking during an Azimio meeting on Friday, Kalonzo exuded confidence that the camp has more winners than Kenya Kwanza, and that the truth will be known once IEBC gives its final results.

"We have the majority members of parliament and governors. We had to debunk this thing which is circulating on social media to the contrary," said Kalonzo at the Kenyatta International Convention Centre on Friday. 

"I was a bit perturbed when I saw people conceding. Nobody should have conceded in Central Kenya because you will be shocked when the truth is known."

Kalonzo further congratulated leaders who have already been announced as winners in their respective regions, adding that he is sure of a Raila Odinga victory. 

"A very hearty congratulations to all of you who have done so well and done our coalition so proud. You have stood so firm for our leader Baba the Fifth. We are confident of a win, we cannot announce we will wait for Chebukati to do that," he said.

The Wiper Party leader also urged the IEBC to be transparent through the vote verification process, urging the nation to remain calm even after the final results will be announced.

"We urge IEBC to do the country the next legitimate thing and announce the winner. I know that the country is going to remain peaceful  after this announcement. "And I congratulate our fellow citizens for remaining solid, patient," he said.
