Kenya opposition slams polls 'charade', results process

Losing an election not easy; Mahama to Kenyans

The election commission says there was a hacking attempt but it failed, and that Odinga's camp has no right to declare him as the victor. "For us going to court is not the alternative", added Orengo.

TheNewsGuru.com reports that at least five people have been reportedly killed in the resulting violence, reminiscent of the 2007 post-presidential election incidents which saw Mr Kenyatta dragged before the International Criminal Court.

"The results published by the electoral commission are a fraud", John Mbadi, a member of Odinga's opposition coalition National Super Alliance, reiterated during a press conference on Friday. The commission says a hacking attempt failed.

"We have seen disputed elections in places like the USA, but so long as the process is, by and large, they have been carried out in a transparent and credible way, politicians should accept the result in a statesmanlike manner". Four people were killed in election-related violence on Wednesday but demonstrations have mostly been brief and isolated as the country waits for official results. This, of course, as a technical issue must be thoroughly investigated by a non-partisan Committee of experts, no matter what the final declaration of the election result is.

The election commission urged Kenyans to be patient and said it should have an update by mid-afternoon Friday, though the counting process has been repeatedly delayed.

His party declared him the victor on Thursday, based on a secret source within the election commission they declined to identify.

Witnesses at the scene said employees were asked to leave the hospital around 11:30 a.m. and police responded to the scene. Nexstar contributors in Albany say a hospital in New Hampshire is being evacuated after an odor was detected.

"We urge candidates and parties to use the legally provided channels of dispute resolution in case of any dissatisfaction with the process and to urge their supporters to remain calm".

Kenyatta's administration has also been plagued by allegations of corruption that many Kenyans see as the reason for the country's vast inequalities, with well-connected millionaires enjoying luxuries while large numbers of people struggle to afford food and housing.

"No Kenyan should die because of an election", Godec said.

Previous accusations of election irregularities in Kenya have sparked violence.

But what makes one a "gracious loser" is when he or she accepts the decision of the people to "choose someone over you", the former Ghanaian leader admonished Kenyan politicians while addressing the media in that country, Thursday.

Opposition supporters burned tires and blocked roads in the Nairobi slum of Kibera and in Kisumu, a city in the southwest where Odinga has strong support.

Meanwhile, Kenya's electoral commission has warned the opposition that its claims of victory for its presidential candidate, Odinga, could be deemed illegal. Analysts expected faceoffs between protesters and police in places like Kibera, but said the violence would not likely consume entire cities and towns as it did a decade ago.

Most businesses remain closed with several public transport operators in various parts of the East African nation for the third day on Thursday opting to keep their vehicles off the road.

Bystanders watch as Kenyan police trucks arrive following a protest at Nairobi's Mathare slum on August 11.

Preliminary results show the incumbent, President Uhuru Kenyatta, leading by nine percentage points with almost all the votes counted.

Kenya's capital has a heavy police presence as residents await an announcement of the results of Tuesday's already disputed presidential election.
