Kenya's opposition rejects verdict that presidential election was fair

"The results come from the election management body", he said by telephone. A presidential candidate must secure 51 percent of the vote to win outright, otherwise a run-off election is held.

Odinga, aside from claiming the electronic results are a "sham", has complained about delays in the sending through of the forms, further fuelling suspicion about manipulation. The IEBC must be fully accountable.

Officials have said it was unlikely they would shut down the internet, but said they might shut down some social media if necessary to calm hate speech and incitement.

"This is a fraud of monumental gravity".

But what makes one a "gracious loser" is when he or she accepts the decision of the people to "choose someone over you", the former Ghanaian leader admonished Kenyan politicians while addressing the media in that country, Thursday.

"Our mothers and fathers all struggled so that we would all have a better Kenya and a better future", Kenyatta said in a televised address on Monday.

"They have done their own additions and they think Raila has 8 million (votes), which is ridiculous, there is nothing", Abdi Yakub Guliye said.

He says he has proof votes were tampered with, based on 50 pages of computer logs he released on his Facebook page.

Worldwide election observers however found few irregularities and called the vote credible.

Tensions remain high in the country following rumours of election fraud in Tuesday's presidential election. That claim echoed one made by Odinga shortly after the voting.

Asked whether that would see the outlook remain stable, he added "Yes that is correct".

Kenya's electoral commission has denied opposition claims its IT system was hacked in order to manipulate Tuesday's election results.

"As for now, I can not say whether the election has been hacked". "We want to go back to work". "At the end of the day we shall do an audit and those questions will be answered", he said.

Extra security forces have been deployed to the streets of Kenya's capital, Nairobi, interior ministry spokesman Mwenda Njoka told CNN.

"I and my friends across the country began queuing up by 1 a.m. just to ensure that we were able to vote".

"Kenyans are good people".

They appealed to political parties, candidates and their supporters to be patient as the tallying process reach a critical phase. Other ethnic groups were also drawn into the violence.

Odinga had said hackers could have used the identity of a top election official, who was tortured and murdered days before the vote.

Odinga took his challenge to court in 2013 and lost.
