Raila Odinga Says Election Systems Hacked — KenyaDecides

However, Odinga has rejected the election result, insisting that the electoral commission's IT system has been hacked to manipulate the election results.

According to the Kenya Today media outlet, the police claimed that the killed protesters were looting during the demonstrations.

According to Nasa, it is practically impossible for political parties to verify all the 41,000 documents with only two terminals that the IEBC is providing.

It is filled by the Presiding Officer after the counting of votes at the polling station.

The riots, in which protesters burned tires and tossed stones and soldiers used tear gas, recall the 2008 crisis when more than 1,000 people died in pitched battles with the police in protests over December 2007 election results. Demonstrators also burned tyres in Kibera, another Nairobi slum. Those who openly expressed fear with insecurity of lives and property have been proved wrong.

On the ground, unrest was reported in Kisumu, an opposition stronghold on the shores of Lake Victoria.

So far, two people have been confirmed dead in confrontation with the police.

Kenyans on Tuesday flocked to voted in elections that pits President Uhuru Kenyatta against challenger Raila Odinga in the East Africa's richest economy.from urbanites to ethnic Samburu warriors draped in colorful beads and carrying spears, thousands of voters formed long lines at many polling stations before dawn, to cast their ballots.

The opposition leader had earlier told journalists the results coming in were "fake" because the authorities had failed to present documents verifying the results.

"We demand that the IEBC chairperson announce the presidential election results forthwith and declare Raila Amolo the duly elected president".

Reporting from Nairobi, Sky's Foreign Affairs Editor Sam Kiley said Mr Odinga's allegations 'boil down to a claim that returning officers were supposed to submit a scan of their results to the Independent Electoral Boundaries Commission'.

The IEBC and opposition have called for calm and are urged voters to "maintain the peace" while the final results are being tabulated.

Police fired teargas to disperse groups of Odinga supporters.
