"Thanks to the Almighty God.The will of the people of Embakasi East is finally out. Results before the recount.Babu Owino-46587.Francis Mureithi-42253. Results AFTER recount: Babu Owino 46813, Francis Mureithi 42475.Thank you, God the devil is ashamed," read Babu's facebook post.

Controversy has however surrounded the exercise with both camps declaring parallel results as the exercise was progressing.

Mureithi in his application made the case that the illegibility and discrepancies on the result forms made it difficult to ascertain what the true results were.

However, Kenyans are yet to hear from the High court and the IEBC after the Babu Owino declaration.
