Nairobi – Counting of Kenyan election results has been stopped because of problems with the electronic systems, according to a BBC report.
Returning officers were ordered to physically deliver paper copies of their constituency's vote tallies to the counting centre in the capital.
Some electoral officials had to drive hundreds of kilometres to the counting centre in Nairobi to deliver the paper copies of their returns.
Various returning officers were seen arriving during the early hours of Wednesday.
Uhuru Kenyatta leads in the presidential race. He faces trial at the International Criminal Court over claims - he denies - of being behind post-election violence in 2007-2008.
His closest rival is outgoing Prime Minister Raila Odinga.
