BREAKING: Kenyatta wins Kenya’s re-run presidential election

Kenya’s election commission said this afternoon that President Uhuru Kenyatta has won the controversial re-run election which was boycotted by main opposition group.

He won 98% of the vote with turnout at just under 39% – less than half that recorded in August’s vote, according to the election commission.

The opposition leader, Raila Odinga, pulled out of the re-run and urged his supporters to boycott it.

Mr Kenyatta was also declared the winner in the August vote, which was annulled because of “irregularities”.
