Shot Dead In Kenya Elections Protests

Kenya's president takes early lead after peaceful vote

Jokes, Hashtags and Fake News: The Story of Social Media in Kenya's Closely Contested Election

He did not elaborate.

"... The integrity of elections are guaranteed by the backup systems that support those elections so given but not admitting that there was a hacking there are backup systems to still guarantee the integrity of the elections", he added.

The commission has refuted the allegations of hacking, and global observers said the election was "free and fair" and largely peaceful.

Marietje Schaake said that the European Union mission's final report would evaluate the conduct of the tallying process, which opposition leader Raila Odinga said had been compromised by hackers.

Former South president, Thabo Mbeki, who is leading the AU observer mission, told journalists at a press briefing in Nairobi that the counting of votes was being carried out in a transparent manner in the presence of all party representatives.

Two people were shot dead in the capital Nairobi on Wednesday, the city's police chief Japheth Koome said, claiming they took advantage of the protests to steal.

If no one can figure out how to control what people will do as soon as the result is announced, Kenya may see the violence that will surpass what happened after the 2007 elections when over 1,500 people were killed and another 600,000 people displaced.

Opposition official Musalia Mudavadi claimed to have "complete data" from election commission servers showing Odinga with a lead of several hundred thousand votes over Kenyatta, contrary to results on the commission's website that put the president more than 1 million votes ahead.

Though there are eight presidential candidates on the ballot, Kenyatta and Odinga are the leading candidates in the race that appears too close to call.

He, however, provided no supporting documentation.

He alleged that hackers had infiltrated the election authority's systems using the identity of Chris Msando, a election official who was tortured and murdered a week before the vote.

Demonstrator Sebastian Omolo, a supporter of Mr Odinga, said: 'He is not accepting the results and that is why we are on the streets but police have started shooting'.

Mr Odinga labelled the preliminary results as fake but urged his supporters to remain calm. His deputy Kalonzo Musyoka said the opposition might call for unspecified "action" later. At least five knife-wielding men attacked a vote-tallying station and stabbed one man.

Police shot dead two attackers.

Global observer missions called for calm and restraint as the results were being finalised a day after isolated protests broke out following opposition leader Raila Odinga's rejection of the early tally.
