Kenya election: opposition demand access to electoral commission IT system

Text size Aa Aa

The opposition in Kenya have demanded access to electoral commission servers in a bid to resolve the country’s fiercely contested presidential poll.

Provisional results show incumbent Uhuru Kenyatta has a clear lead over his rival Raila Odinga, who says the electoral commission’s IT system was hacked.

While International observers have described the election as free and fair, the opposition coalition has now said it will accept Tuesday’s vote based on figures found in the commission’s servers.

The row over the presidential result has raised fears of a repeat of the violence which erupted after Kenya’s disputed election 10 years ago.

That saw around 1,200 people killed and hundreds of thousands displaced.
