'Uhuru Kenyatta must go,' Kenya opposition demands

"They (the results) are fictitious, they are fake", he told a news conference, saying the election board was required by law to display forms signed by party observers from each polling center certifying the results and had not done so.

Supporters of opposition presidential candidate Raile Odinga took to the streets of this capital and other important cities today to protest against what they call electoral fraud in favor of President Uhuru Kenyatta.

NAIROBI, KENYA-The database of Kenya's election commission was unsuccessfully targeted by a hacking attempt, a top official said Thursday, disputing allegations by opposition leader Raila Odinga that hackers were able to infiltrate the computer system and manipulate results against him following Tuesday's vote.

At least six people have been killed in protest violence, Aljazeera reports, and onlookers fear a repeat of post-2007 election violence which saw over 1000 people killed in the months following the elections.


Raw polling data published on its website says that with nearly all of results in, Mr Kenyatta - who is seeking a second term - is leading with about 54.3%, to Mr Odinga's 44.8% share of the vote.

She praised the IEBC for conducting a thorough and transparent electoral process, but said she wouldn't comment on allegations of hacking.

"The commission has done its best to ensure a credible election", said Chebukati. "The results show Raila garnered 8.04 million votes and Uhuru 7.7 million", he said.

Thabo Mbeki, the former South African president in charge of the African Union observer mission, has praised the poll so far. European Union observers said on Thursday that they saw no signs of manipulation in the voting process, calling on whoever wins the election to try to heal political divisions in the country. Multiple people have reportedly been killed as a result of the unrest.


Orengo, who is Siaya Senator and the coalition's alternate chief agent, noted on Friday that they will accept the presidential result if indeed they have been defeated.

Odinga also ran as the opposition candidate in the 2013 election. "We continue to urge everyone to be calm, to be resilient and to be peaceful", said the EU's Schaake.

The various observer missions monitoring the elections in Kenya have called for peace in that country.

However, denying he would have any role in sparking any politically motivated violence, the veteran opposition leader said: "I don't control anybody".
