Harare, Zimbabwe(News of the South)-Kenya’s opposition leader rejected preliminary results from a tightly-contested presidential election on Wednesday, decrying the tallying process as a “sham” as President Uhuru Kenyatta surged ahead.

 

 

The allegation by Kenyatta’s longtime rival Raila Odinga raised fears of a possibly violent dispute over the results of Tuesday’s election to decide the leader of east Africa’s most vibrant democracy.

 

 

“These results are fake, it is a sham. They cannot be credible,” Odinga told a press conference in the early hours of the morning as partial results fell quickly via an electronic tallying system aimed at preventing fraud.

 

 

Results released by the electoral commission (IEBC) showed Kenyatta leading with 55% of the nearly 13 million ballots counted against Odinga’s 44%, a difference of nearly 1.4 million votes.-AFP
