Ahmed who was vying on an Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) ticket accused the returning officer of rigging the election in favour of Muthama.
Results showed that Muthama garnered 11,090 votes against Ahmed’s 10,950.
An angry Ahmed claimed that not all votes from various polling stations, especially those he considered to be in his strongholds, were tallied.
As for now, the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) has received 270 Constituency Result Forms 34B from 290 constituencies.
In a message posted on its Twitter account Friday morning, the poll agency said: “Efforts are being made to have the remaining 20 come in.”
IEBC Chairman Wafula Chebukati had on Thursday directed all Returning Officers to send final presidential results to the National Tallying Centre by midday Friday, to facilitate validation of the figures.
Speaking at a news conference at the Bomas of Kenya, Chebukati said following validation of the results, the announcement of Kenya’s next President will then be made.
A total of 40,501 forms 34A out of 40,883 had been received at the National Tallying Centre by 8 pm Thursday.
