• Several candidates have conceded defeat based on the results released at the constituency tallying centres.
• They include Naomi Shaban (Taveta MP seat), Moses Kuria (Kiambu governor seat) and Joshua Kutuny (Chereng'any MP seat).
Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission chairman Wafula Chebukati has told non-presidential candidates who know they have lost in the August 9 polls to concede.
While responding to a question from the media on the reliability of the results some candidates were using to accept defeat, the chairman said election results declared at the constituency level are final.
"I want to believe the people conceding at the constituency have already received their results. If you know your results, your agents have given you the results forms, what would you be waiting for?" Chebukati said.

Others are Nyaribari Chache MP Richard Tong’i and Embakasi West MP George Theuri.
Chebukati also said tallied results are accessible to anyone on the public results portal.
"Social media, the mainstream media, observers and other individuals interested in this process are getting details from the public portal. The public portal has Form 34As, which are the same forms that are also shared with the commission at our back end,"he said.
"And so, these are the results, there are no other results."
The briefing on Wednesday at Bomas was the second since voting closed on Tuesday at 5pm.
Chebukati said voter turnout stood at 65.4 per cent as at Wednesday based on data from Kiems kits.
"This figure will go higher once we compute the verification of turnout in areas that did manual voting," he said.
The law requires the commission to declare the winner of the presidential race seven days from the time voting closes.
"However, the commission shall endeavour to conclude this exercise at the earliest time possible. That figure, then, will obviously go up," Chebukati said.
