Nairobi(ANN)-William Ruto, who was the former Vice President of the outgoing President, was announced as the winner of the presidential election in Kenya amid dramatic scenes of violence and celebrations.

As a result of the delayed election, the Electoral Commission on Monday announced the victory of William Ruto, who narrowly defeated his rival, Raila Odinga, with 50.49% of the votes cast, according to the official results.

However, four of the seven members of the electoral commission refused to approve the results, and said that it was ambiguous and inconsistent, which caused violence and violence at the place where the results were announced.

“We cannot take ownership of the results that will be announced because of the ambiguous nature of the last phase of the general election,” said Juliana Cherera, the deputy chairman of the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) who spoke to the media.

She called on Kenyans to calm down, “there is an open door where people can go to court, and they will be judged according to the law,” she said, adding that she will issue a full statement.

William Ruto was the vice president for 10 years, but he clashed with President Uhuru Kenyatta who supported Mr Odinga to take over, and he started a tough fight between the outgoing President Uhuru Kenyatta and Odinga from facing both two families who have been involved in Kenyan politics for almost the last century, since Kenya gained independence from Britain in the sixties.

The focus of his campaign was to deal with the country’s economy, especially business matters, and his victory removed the two families that have been tied to the country’s politics for the last sixty years, which was part of his campaign to sell the Kenyan people.
