Raila Odinga rejects presidential election results re-run

Kenyan opposition leader, Raila Odinga has rejected the results of the re-run presidential election that saw Uhuru Kenyatta gaining a second term.

Mr Odinga called it a sham but made no mention of any legal challenge.

Mr Odinga called for a national resistance movement to bring civil society groups together to restore democracy.

Mr Kenyatta won 98 percent of the vote with turnout under 40 percent less than half that recorded in August’s vote.

Mr Kenyatta, who is now set to serve a second term, said if the new results were challenged in the courts he would accept the outcome.

He has appealed for calm and promised Kenyans that their neighbour will remain their neighbour despite political uncertainty.
