People in Kisumu keep telling me that they’ve run out of toilet paper. The agonizing wait for the presidential election results seems to have caused mass diarrhoea 😂

3 days since they voted, Kenyans still don't know who their next president will be. That's not by accident. It was designed to be this slow

This Kisumu heat is so disrespectful for a bald man but I came prepared

Does anyone have a calculator and (a lot of) time? Kenya just needs to add up presidential numbers from ~46,000 forms real quick

We drove from Eldoret to Kisumu today. Our latest on CNN as Kenyans await a presidential race that remains "too close to call"

Polls have closed nationwide in the Kenyan general election. Everywhere we’ve been in Eldoret, voters dried up by afternoon. Waiting on official numbers but turnout could be low

Don’t ask Martha Karua if Kenya is ‘ready’ for a female president. She’s had it with that question

Martha Karua would like you to stop calling her "the Iron Lady"

Congrats to “Ugandan” Victor Kiplangat for his marathon gold in Birmingham. Sometimes we Kenyans like to let the Ugandans - and Tanzanians - win to keep it interesting, in the spirit of East African cooperation 😉 https://t.co/jYUh6pxHlZ

I asked William Ruto what's difference between him and Raila Odinga: Ruto: "I have a plan, he doesn't. He's a good old man but..." Raila: "I'm younger than President Biden. Age has nothing to do with it"

Covering #KenyaDecides2022 : #CNN’s @MaxFosterCNN and @LarryMadowo are serving looks and not asking women candidates if “Kenya is ready for a female president.” Great to see @cnni live on the ground,with Larry reporting from one of the crucial locales in the #Kenya vote.

More than 10 years ago Kenya set a requirement to have at least one-third female members of parliament. Kenya still has the lowest number of elected women in East Africa today. CNN's @LarryMadowo speaks with the women running to change that. Watch: https://t.co/FSEXZoc7SG
