NAIROBI (Reuters) – Opposition leader Raila Odinga said on Wednesday hackers broke into Kenya’s election commission computer systems and database overnight, leading to “massive and extensive” vote fraud that nullified the published victory of President Uhuru Kenyatta. Speaking at a news conference, Odinga urged his supporters to remain calm, but added: “I don’t control the people”. His deputy Kalonzo Muyoka repeated the call for calm but said the opposition might call for unspecified “action” at a later date.
