Johannesburg- Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta has declared winner of re-run of the presidential election on October 30.
Independent Electoral Boundaries Commissiion (IEBC) chairman Wafula Chebukati said Kenyatta won 98% of the vote. IEBC was unable to hold elections in 25 constituencies in Nyanza but says the failed elections will not affect the final result. According to the IEBC, 38.84 percent of the registered voters turned up to cast their ballots, or 7.6 million of the 19.6 million registered voters.
The opposition leader, Raila Odinga, pulled out of the re-run and urged his supporters to boycott it. The re-run presidential poll was marred by violence.
