Nakuru Governor elect Lee Kinyanjui has said Nasa politicians who won elections should first decline their victory if they doubt IEBC's results that shows that President Uhuru Kenyatta is leading.
Kinyanjui was speaking yesterday at Nakuru Boys High school where he was declared winner.
The former chairman of the National Transport and Safety Authority said it was hypocritical for some leaders to celebrate their victory announced by IEBC and on the other hand term reject the presidential results from the same agency.
"We want to thank the IEBC for conducting a free and fair elections that has pleased US observers," he said.
Kinyanjui said the Kenyan iebc deserves emulation by African institutions.
His Deputy Governor elect Dr Erick Korir, thanked the people of Nakuru for promoting peace during campaigns asking them to continue respecting humanity regardless of their ethnicity.
Lee was won with 632,740 votes followed by CCM's Peter Koros with, 70,779 votes.
