Chaos erupted at the vote-tallying center in Kenya’s capital, Nairobi, as four of the nation’s electoral commissioners held a media briefing at a separate venue, questioning the results of last week’s presidential election. 

“We cannot take ownership of the result that is going to be announced because of the opaque nature of these results,” Juliana Cherera, vice chairwoman of the commission, said in televised comments. “The four of us are here and not at” the tally center “because of the opaque nature of this last phase,” Cherera said.
