Kenyan Re-run Poll : Uhuru Kenyatta declared winner

The Kenyan elections has been concluded with the President Uhuru Kenyatta declared winner despite the fact that there was a low turnout of voter at just under 39% of the electorate.

His main opposition rival Mr Raila Odinga pulled out at the last minute saying the electoral commission wasn’t going to guarantee a free and fair election.

 

The August elections which foreign observers claimed were free and fair, was cancelled by the highest court in the land in August, sighting irregularities.

The re-run was suspended in 25 constituencies amid security fears. The commission said those results would not affect the final outcome so it could proceed with its announcement.

Commission chairman Wafula Chebukati described the latest vote as “free, fair and credible”. Kenya’s opposition now has seven days to mount a legal challenge, and Mr Odinga says he will make an announcement on Tuesday.
