Kenya's Elections At A Glance

Mahama commends Kenyans for peaceful election

Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta was on Friday declared the victor of Tuesday's presidential elections with 8.20 million (54.27 percent) votes against 6.76 million (44.74 percent) for his main challenger, Raila Odinga after a tense electoral process which was preceded by an opposition walkout.

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.

The opposition said documentation from nearly 11,000 polling stations remains outstanding and no results were announced at the constituency offices as required, an anomaly the electoral commission has failed to explain.

Worldwide observers, for their part, have lent their blessing to the electoral process in Kenya, saying that despite "minor variances" the election was conducted freely and fairly.

Earlier, Mr Odinga's supporters said he had won, and published their own figures.

Chiloba says the commission chairman, Wafula Chebukati, will make an announcement later in the day.

The dispute led to a spate of ethnic violence that led to the death of 1,200 people and displaced some 600,000. "I therefore wish to declare Uhuru Kenyatta.as President-elect", said Mr Chebukati.

Hours after voting ended, Raila called a press conference saying that the IEBC system had been hacked and Presidential results compromised.

He encouraged political leaders in Kenya "to rise to the occasion" and spurred the leadership of that country to ensure Kenya does not "burn because of an election".

Mr. Obasanjo said it would not be in anybody's interest in Kenya to have to resort to the ICC again.

Civic education in Africa still lags behind; We need a lot of civic education and be taught on how to vote peacefully and go back to work.

He said that if losers "graciously" accepted election defeat, they would end up being winners.

Another top NASA official James Orengo denounced the counting process as "an entire charade, this is a disaster".

In 2013, Odinga lost to Kenyatta and claimed the results were manipulated but Kenya's Supreme Court announced Kenyatta the victor.

Opposition candidate Raila Odinga claims the commission database was hacked and results manipulated in favor of President Uhuru Kenyatta. By the evening, after multiple delays, the country's elections commission still had not made any announcements.

Soon after Odinga claimed on television that the election had been rigged, angry protesters in the Nairobi slum of Mathare and poor areas in the opposition stronghold of Kisumu in the southwest burned tires, set up roadblocks and clashed with police. Without having all these forms to present to the public, the IEBC has had to admit that the results it has been announcing since Wednesay are unofficial.

Many Kenyans have left Nairobi in recent days, bracing for violence.

"We have urged people to remain calm as we delve deeper into this matter". One person was killed by a machete-wielding gang that attacked a tally center in coastal Tana River county, and police shot dead two of the assailants.
