Kenya election chief’s maths questioned

The vice-chairperson of Kenya’s election commission Juliana Cherera was one of the four commissioners who refused to endorse the results of the presidential results announced on Monday.

She has been explaining their reasoning.

She claimed that if you added the percentages as announced by the chairperson of the commission, Wafula Chebukati, the sum came to 100.01%.

The claim needs to be tested and could be down to a rounding error, but Ms Cherera described this as a mathematic absurdity that defied logic.

She added that the results of the presidential elections did not reflect the opinion of the commissioners, because they had to process them before they were declared and they did not get to see all of them.
