Uhuru got 8,203,290 votes (54.27 percent) against Raila Odinga’s 6,762,224 votes (44.74 percent). Uhuru met the 50+1 threshold. The 2017 general election had a voter turnout of 79.17 percent. 

The other six presidential candidates got a combined percentage vote of 0.97 percent. Uhuru got over 25 percent of votes in 35 counties while Raila got 25 percent in 29C ounties. 

IEBC Chairman Wafula Chebukati said despite the few challenges the election process was generally successful. He also thanked the international observers who also confirmed the credibility of the election. 

"Having fulfilled the requirements of the law, I wish to declare Hon. Uhuru Kenyatta as the president-elect and Hon. William Ruto as the deputy president elect of Kenya," Chebukati announced at 10 pm.

Uhuru, 55, starts his second term as the fourth President of Kenya after a neck and neck race with NASA’s presidential candidate, 72-year-old Raila Odinga.
