How the Kenya’s New President Will Be Announced Today
Last week, Kenyans elected their new president. Additionally, new governors, senators, women representatives, members of parliament and members of county assembly were elected.
Unlike the five seats which were announced by the returning officers at various county or constituency tallying centers, the new president will be announced by the chairman of the independent electoral and boundaries commission, IEBC.
Once the national tallying is done, the commission will find the winner of the presidential polls.

Upon receiving the name, the president will notify the Chief of General Staff, National Intelligence Director and the Inspector General, to make arrangements on how the new president will be protected. Further the three will be instructed to observe moves of the loser.
The new president will then be called by the outgoing President and notified of his win.
The security of the new president will then be beefed up with elite VIP protection commandoes
Thereafter, IEBC will announce the winner to the nation.
