MCK advocates for common election relay

The Media Council of Kenya (MCK) has noted growing concerns on the different election results being transmitted by media houses.

MCK Chief Executive Officer (CEO) David Omwoyo said that they are in consultation with Media Owners and Editors to find an urgent solution to this to ensure Kenyans receive synchronised results.

“The Council appreciates this as a genuine uneasiness, given its implication on anxiety levels among the public,” said Omwoyo in a statement to newsrooms on Wednesday.

The CEO said that the council confirms that the results being projected are all from the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) though the sequencing by different media houses is from different voting areas.

“Media houses have previously executed joint production with remarkable success on such matters of national interest. In the meantime, we remind Kenyans that the final results of the elections will be declared by IEBC,” said Omwoyo.
