Kenyan Presidential re-run

The Kenyan Supreme Court declared the August 8 presidential election in the country to be null and void, citing “irregularities and illegalities" in the vote. As a result President Uhuru Kenyatta was stripped of his victory. Main opposition leader Raila Odinga has withdrawn from elections as he seeks the sacking of several election commission officials and set other conditions for taking part in the re-run after the landmark scrapping of the election, a first in Africa. Meanwhile a week before the re-run President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto have fired a warning shot to foreign countries, accusing them of trying to interfere with Kenya’s affairs.
