NAIROBI (Reuters) - Kenya's election commission said it expected to announce a final result in a tightly fought presidential election at 11 a.m. (03:00 a.m. EST) on Saturday, extending an already delayed count after earlier saying it would issue a final tally on Friday.
"We will do our final declaration not this evening but tomorrow (Saturday) morning around 11 o'clock," Yusuf Nzibo told a news conference. "So please be patient because this is a serious matter. We want to make sure as a commission that our figures are accurate."
