    Uhuru Kenyatta Wins Kenya Presidential Election



    Kenya’s President Uhuru Kenyatta has been re-elected following Tuesday’s vote, election officials say.

    Mr Kenyatta, in office since 2013, took 54.3% of votes, ahead of his rival Raila Odinga, with 44.7%.

    After the announcement, Mr Kenyatta called for unity, telling opposition supporters: “I reach out to you… We are all citizens of the same republic”.


    But the opposition rejected the results even before they were declared, calling the process a “charade”. 

    However it has been endorsed by international observers. Mr Kenyatta said they had ensured a “free, fair and credible election”.

    Earlier, Mr Odinga’s supporters said he had won, and published their own figures. The electoral commission said this was “illegal and premature”, and said basic mathematical errors had been made.

    Many observers fear a repeat of the violence after the disputed election 10 years ago when more than 1,100 Kenyans died and 600,000 were displaced.

    Raila Odinga has come up short again in what was his fourth and probably last attempt to become the president of Kenya
