He said they will be ready to do so should they clearly see that figures in the commission's server show they lost.

Provisional results show President Uhuru Kenyatta with a lead of 1.4 million votes as he vies for a second and final five-year term.

Kenya's election commission on Wednesday said its computer and vote-tallying databases were not compromised at any point during Tuesday's vote, dismissing claims of hacking and vote fraud.

The additional verification process was agreed upon after 72-year-old Odinga alleged that hackers had manipulated the voting system after Tuesday's polls.

At least four people have been killed in election-related unrest in the East African nation.

According to unofficial results streamed onto the website of Kenya's election commission (IEBC), Kenyatta was holding on to a commanding lead with 54 percent, while Raila Odinga has only secured 44.7 percent, with votes from over 96 percent of polling stations counted.

Musalia Mudavadi claimed to have gathered "complete data" from the election commission indicating "the actual presidential election results contained in their database". "We commend the IEBC for ensuring that overall law and order prevailed throughout the electoral process observed", said Rugumayo.

A team of worldwide observers - made up of officials from the European Union, African Union the Commonwealth and the Carter Center - commended the work of electoral mission.

Odinga urged supporters to remain calm on Wednesday, but added: "I don't control the people". At least three people were killed amid clashes with police.

The IEBC said it will announce the results by noon local time if all the validation from the polling station results are done.

"Candidates and their supporters must accept that not winning is a natural part of a democratic competition", European Union observer mission head Marietje Schaake said.

"According to us, the results are null and void because they are not backed by any evidence".

The various observer missions monitoring the elections in Kenya have called for peace in that country.

The first incident occurred when protesters at the Mathare slums in capital Nairobi blocked traffic by lighting bonfires on the streets.

The claims, which have not been verified, tie into the narrative supported by the opposition party during the campaign that the ruling party meant to steal the election.
