Vice President William Ruto Wins Kenyan Presidential Election

On his first attempt, William Ruto, Kenya’s deputy president, won the race to be the president of the East African nation.

According to results announced by the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) on Monday, August 15, William Ruto who is the Country’s Deputy President won Kenya’s presidential vote defeating, Raila Odinga, a former Member of Parliament for Langata and businessman who served as the Prime Minister of Kenya from 2008 to 2013.

According to the reports, Odinga was the preferred candidate of Kenya’s serving president Uhuru Kenyatta, but Ruto defied the odds in the election and is now the new leader of Kenya, Eastern Africa’s richest and most stable nation.

Ruto narrowly beat his rival, Raila Odinga, taking 50.4% of the vote, according to the IEBC.

The declaration was delayed between the allegations of vote-rigging by Odinga’s campaign early Monday but has now been confirmed by the country’s electoral body. 

This is the 5th time Odinga would contest to be president… and fail.
