Kenya's defeated Odinga to take poll dispute to top court

The end of campaigns and subsequent elections on Tuesday came as a huge relief for politicians who were gunning for various offices Kenya's defeated Odinga to take poll dispute to top court

President Uhuru Kenyatta of Jubilee party was declared the victor of last week's General Election after gaining more than eight million votes against his main challenger Raila Odinga of the opposition group National Super Alliance (NASA).

Earlier on Wednesday, the European Union observer mission, which has broadly praised the vote so far, urged the election commission to publish all remaining forms showing vote tallies on its website to ensure transparency.

Instead, Odinga has been leveling charges of fraud without offering any evidence to support them and encouraging his supporters to take to the streets.

Odinga's move came on Sunday after the worldwide community appealed to him to send out a message to try to halt deadly protests.

"This historic election is an important step forward, and we urge all Kenyans to unite in peace to continue building their country", the United States said. But Andrew Limo, an election commission spokesman, said about 2,900 of the 41,000 forms showing results at individual polling stations were not yet online.

The National Non-governmental Organisations Board has said it de-registered the Kenya Human Rights Commission and called for the arrest of the directors of the Africa Centre for Open Governance.

However, he defiantly pledged to "remove" Kenyatta's government that he said stole votes from him in August 8 elections.

The U.S. government later congratulated President Kenyatta on his reelection but expressed concerns over reports of violence in the country.

Violence had broken out after Odinga said the August 8 election was rigged; Kenya's election commission, which declared President Uhuru Kenyatta had won, says its voting process was fair.

Odinga has charged that last Tuesday's election was rigged in favor of incumbent Uhuru Kenyatta through the hacking and manipulation of the electronic vote counting system. Akombe, who is a dual US and Kenya citizen, was not given any reason why she stopped from boarding her flight, said officials.

Mr Kenyatta also garnered more than 25 per cent of the votes cast in 35 counties, compared to Mr Odinga who got over 25 per cent in 29 counties, Mr Chebukati said. She was to board a connecting flight to the U.S. Wednesday morning more than 10 hours later, said the officials. He claims the election was rigged.
