Uhuru Kenyatta Wins Kenyan Presidential Election

Claiming victory after receiving 50.07 percent of the vote


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.
