He urged election losers to accept the will of the people and concede defeat rather than heightening tension by refuting the electoral results.

The former prime minister Raila Odinga and his main challenger in the presidential contest have already assured to concede defeat to whoever will be declared a winner in the just concluded general election.

The Agano party leader David Waihiga Mwaure on Sunday conceded defeat in a televised press conference and congratulated whoever will be president-elect.

The Roots Party presidential candidate George Luchiri Wajackoyah and Agano Party’s David Waihiga Mwaure have already arrived at Bomas of Kenya awaiting for the announcement of the presidential results.

Constitutionally, if the leading candidate will not attain 50+1 per cent, Kenyans will be forced to vote for the two leading candidates in the previous election within 30 days after the declaration.
