Kenya elections: No need to kill for power - Mahama

1100 Kenyans to Vote in Uganda

"They are fictitious, they are fake", Odinga's claimed. "We continue to urge everyone to be calm, to be resilient and to be peaceful", she added.

In a communique, the observers said, to achieve this, IEBC personnel needed to be able to work freely in a secure environment, with time to complete the process.

"We therefore call on the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) to continue within the constitutionally provided time frame, the tallying with full integrity and transparency so that all Kenyans can trust the announced results", they said.

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.

Two people were shot dead in the capital Nairobi on Wednesday, said the city's police chief Japheth Koome, claiming they took advantage of the protests to steal. Odinga alleged voting irregularities in that election as well, but the country's high court ruled in Kenyatta's favor.

In a separate incident in Galole constituency in Tana River County along the Kenyan coast, five knife-wielding men attacked an election tallying center killing one person.


The electoral commission is making the whole 28, 000 forms so far received by the commission available to party agents and later to the people of Kenya via their online portal.

"Hacking was attempted but did not succeed", election commission chairman Wafula Chebukati told a news conference.

Although there are eight presidential candidates on the ballot paper, the real battle is between incumbent Kenyatta, the 55-year-old son of Kenya's founding president and his longtime rival, 72-year-old Odinga, son of the country's first vice-president. Nothing came of it in 2013 - but in 2007, post-election violence led to more than 1,000 deaths.

Odinga also released "evidence" to the media that supposedly proved that hackers had used the credentials of Msando to infiltrate the system after voting on August 8. As his speech ended scores of supporters gathered at a roundabout in Kisumu and began burning tyres, while others gathered in the Nairobi slum of Mathare under a heavy police presence.

Official results are expected to be released in the coming days, with the electoral commission allowed a week to produce final results.
