He further noted that even if all the 3,500 votes from the five polling stations in Kisumu East, which were not recorded, were to be added to Ranguma’s final tally, it would not affect the final outcome.
Mr Ranguma has however said that he is not bitter with the outcome.
“I am confident I won the elections and I have done my part as an individual to prove my case and to ensure the will of the people of Kisumu is respected,” he said.
He further wished his successor the best and asked him to deliver the promises made during the campaigns.
“I wish Nyong’o all the best. I am not sure I will appeal the case, but it is subject to the advice I will get from my legal and entire team.” he said
