Kenyan opposition leader Raila Odinga has rejected the results of the re-run presidential election that saw Uhuru Kenyatta gaining a second term.
In his first official reaction to the re-run, Odinga called it “a sham” but made no mention of any legal challenge.
Kenyatta had won 98 percent of the vote with turnout under 40 percent, less than half that was recorded in August’s vote, largely because of an opposition boycott.
The Supreme Court had annulled the first vote in August citing “irregularities and illegalities”.
