Result of presidential election Kenya - With 5.88 million votes in his favour, Uhuru Kenyatta, the son of founding Kenyan President, inched closer to the presidency with votes in 264 of 291 constituencies counted.
Raila Odinga has scored 4.78 million votes as at Friday and there are 27 more constituencies left.
The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) Chairman, Issack Hassan, and the Chief Executive Officer, James Oswago, said the tallying of the votes ran into fresh trouble after new errors were discovered.
'This is a difficult process, you have to get it right first time. Certain things need to be looked into. We have formed teams to review all the county results,' Oswago said, speaking for the first time after keeping out of the public limelight for days.
As Kenyatta's Jubilee Coalition prepared for celebrations, Nairobi, the Kenyan capital, remained generally tense with anti-riot police in trucks patrolling the streets.
Police remained on high alert and deployed strategically, but kept in camouflaged white civilian trucks.
The total number of votes so far counted stood at 11 million and analysts said the elections were likely going to a runoff.
Earlier, Musalia Mudavadi, the Presidential candidate of the United Democratic Forum (UDF), conceded defeat, saying 'I appeal to IEBC not to be seen to create anxiety in the tallying of results.
'It is clear the choice is between two formations. I have called Raila Odinga and Uhuru Kenyatta to congratulate them.'
'We may have our misgivings about the conduct of the elections,' Mudavadi told a news conference. 'There is uneasy calm that depends on the need to calm supporters. They (Odinga and Kenyatta) must ensure no statements contribute to the breakdown of the uneasy civic calm.'
The polls tally appeared to drag further off into late Friday and the IEBC said it was intent on declaring the final Presidential tally.
There were only 27 more constituencies to declare the results before a final tally is reached. The voter turnout remains unknown at this time.
'We expected the results much earlier. We are working around the clock to finalise the results today. We sincerely apologise for the delay in the release of the results,' Hassan told a news conference.
Kenya's new constitution requires the winner of the elections to garner 50% plus one vote and at least 25% of all the votes cast in 24 out of the 47 counties.
Meanwhile, the High Court declined to order the stoppage of the tallying of the Presidential elections, saying it had no such jurisdiction.
Justice David Majanja ruled that the High Court lacked the jurisdiction to order the stoppage of the polls. The Judge decided the challenge should be taken to the Supreme Court to decide the elections.
