Kenya: New dawn as Uhuru wins

09 March 2013, 09:43 Pauline Nyumu

A clip making rounds on social media a week before Kenya went to the ballot had these words inscribed on it: On March 4, Kibaki will go back to Othaya where he was born, and Uhuru to statehouse where he was born.

Well, this prophecy has come to pass with Uhuru Kenyatta maintaining a lead of 6 178 433 votes against his close rival Raila Odinga’s 5 340 546.

This was the final tally released by IEBC from 291/291 constituencies.

On Friday evening, Jubilee winners were seen pitching tents at Catholic University in Karen, preparing for a big party win.


Raila Odinga of ODM was planning a press briefing at his Karen home which was moved to Saturday morning.

It was speculated that Raila was already conceding defeat because the gap between the two ‘horses’ was already over by 1m votes.

Both Raila and Uhuru had met the constitutional requirement of winning at least 25 per cent in 24 counties.

The rest of the pack

Two presidential candidates Peter Kenneth and Musalia Mudavadi had already conceded defeat.

In his statement, Musalia Mudavadi said, “In every competition there is a winner; we are not the winner for now.”

He also congratulated Raila Odinga and Uhuru Kenyatta for the early lead saying it was clear the race was between two formations, TNA and ODM.

Both aspirants promised to work with the winner in order to develop the nation.

However, other aspirants were still holding on, with Mohamed Abduba Dida expressing hope of a possible win.

Dida is the only candidate who was not aggressively involved in campaigns, making his first appearance during the first presidential debate held on February 11.

On Friday, Dida shared an update on his Facebook page saying “Only hours left for the fate of the country to be known. Let us maintain the peace and love we have kept all through. Thank you for your support. We will make it together!! God's Blessings upon you.”

And finally Kenya has its 4th President

On Saturday night, people from around the country took to the streets with ululations, blowing vuvuzelas and singing the national anthem as they celebrated Uhuru’s win.

The IEBC will make a statement at 11am where the winner of the just concluded elections will be announced officially.

Uhuru Kenyatta is expected to be sworn in as the Kenya’s fourth president on March 26.
