Kenyatta wins Kenyan Presidential Vote

Kenyatta wins Kenyan Presidential Vote

Kenya’s election commission on Saturday declared Uhuru Kenyatta, the son of Kenya’s first president and a suspect for crimes against humanity, as Kenya’s next president amid growing allegations of vote fraud and a refusal by the other leading contender to concede.

Deputy Prime Minister Uhuru Kenyatta appears to have won the presidential election in the first round with the slimmest of majorities, as Kenya's electoral commission prepared Saturday to announce the final results of the nation's presidential election.

Final numbers showed Kenyatta with 50.03 % of the vote. He needs more than 50 % to win outright and avoid a runoff with Prime Minister Raila Odinga, who had 43.3%.
