Kenya election 2017: AU and Commonwealth say poll credible

Foreign observers have expressed confidence in Kenya’s electoral process, despite opposition leader Raila Odinga’s claim of massive fraud.African observers described Tuesday’s poll as credible, while former US Secretary of State John Kerry said its integrity remained intact.

The European Union said candidates should accept losing as “natural”.
Mr Odinga alleges that results of the presidential poll have been rigged to give incumbent Uhuru Kenyatta victory.
On Wednesday, he said that the IT system of the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) had been hacked, and Kenya was witnessing the worst “voter theft” in its history.
The IEBC said there had been an attempt to hack its system, but it had failed.
Heading the Carter Center’s observer team, Mr Kerry urged all sides to wait for the final results, and for the loser to accept defeat.
He said there were “minor variances here and there”, but none that had so far made him doubt the poll’s integrity.
The “bottom-line” was that the IEBC had in place a “transparent process of voting, counting, reporting and securing the vote”, Mr Kerry added at a press conference in Kenya’s capital, Nairobi.
