Uhuru KenyattaKenya’s Deputy Prime Minister Uhuru Kenyatta has been confirmed as the winner of the presidential election.

Mr Kenyatta won 50.07% of the vote on a turnout of 86%, officials said, narrowly avoiding a run-off ballot.

But main rival Raila Odinga alleged massive vote-rigging and said he would challenge the results of the “tainted election” in the Supreme Court.

Mr Kenyatta is set to face trial at the International Criminal Court over violence that followed the 2007 polls.


He is accused of fuelling the communal violence that saw more than 1,000 people killed and 600,000 forced from their homes.
