Kenya'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.
