Kenyatta set to win Kenyan elections

With 88 per cent of the votes counted, Uhuru Kenyantta has a lead of 54.7 per cent with 7,359,774 votes and Raila  Odinga is trailing at 44.5 per cent with 5, 984,927 votes. The pattern seems irreversible. However, the opposition coalition has rejected the partial results, saying election officials have not produced documents to prove their validity.

They are fictitious, they are fake. We have our projections from our agents which show we are ahead by far,

Odinga has told the BBC.

 

The electoral commission has urged Kenyans to wait calmly for full results as many fear a repeat of the violence that followed the disputed 2007 election when more than 1,100 Kenyans died and 600,000 were displaced.

 

“During this critical phase, we urge all Kenyans to exercise restraint as we await official results from the polling stations and indeed as they start trickling in,” said the commission.
