According to witnesses, Kenyan police have fired teargas at a group of 100 chanting supporters of opposition leader Raila Odinga, shortly after their political leader claimed “massive” electoral fraud in the elections.
The unarmed men, chanted “No Raila, no peace”.
As Kenya’s polls closed and counting began, the election board reported that Kenya’s existing president had taken an early lead, but opposition leader Raila Odinga from the National Super Alliance already dismissed the numbers as ‘fake’, and said their own tally showed that they are winning. In a news conference, Odinga claimed that hackers broke into Kenya’s election commission computer systems overnight, leading to “massive and extensive” vote fraud. He urged his supporters to remain calm, but added: “I don’t control the people”.
