Kenya: Odinga puts off announcement on "next plan of action"

Kenya: Odinga puts off announcement on

The 72-year-old Odinga has maintained that Kenyatta's votes were inflated in most regions, especially perceived battle grounds, while his were systematically deducted. Kenya police claim that 10 people have been killed and said almost all were committing crimes. They later claimed that the voting system was hacked in the president's favor, and called it an "attack on our democracy".

The Kenyan government's NGO Board regulatory body has since Monday moved to shut down two rights organisations, one of which said it was mulling Supreme Court action over election "inconsistencies".

The NASA leader was on Wednesday expected to make an announcement on the way forward for the Opposition, after losing the presidential election last week.

Kenyatta has served as president of Kenya since 2013, and will continue to serve a second five-year term, following the 54% lead he had in this year's elections.

2 people killed by bullets in the clashes

Opposition leader asks people to boycott work and stay indoors until he announces new strategy after losing elections.

That rift predates the country's independence in 1963, and some worry that Odinga's refusal to concede will further complicate reconciliation efforts. "We are just a family", said her father Joseph Abanja.

The declaration of Kenyatta's as the victor was followed by protests in some parts of Nairobi and western regions that are opposition leader's strongholds. Those charges were later dropped for lack of evidence.

There was a small protest in Nairobi's Kibera slum, where there were also recent clashes.

However, Kenyans on Twitter have been using the hashtag #TurudiKaziniChallenge (Swahili for "Let's return to work" ) to urge a return to normalcy following last week's disruptions.

The global community has urged calm amid fears that the fraud claims could result in violence.

Most of the jokes bordered on part of the statement by the NASA fraternity that victor of the elections was a Computer Generated President. But within hours, the Interior Ministry reversed that suspension.

He also urged Kenya's political leaders "to take the responsible path and exercise their leadership to avoid violence".

The National Non-governmental Organizations Board has said it de-registered the Kenya Human Rights Commission and called for the arrest of the directors of the Africa Centre for Open Governance. Traffic jams had returned to the city center. "There is nothing much we can do".

"People who may go to court are being deregistered", he said. "You are vulnerable from police brutality and hooligans".

Odinga who has lost three previous elections said the August 8 election was rigged and has refused to concede defeat after incumbent Uhuru Kenyatta was declared the victor with 54 percent of the vote against Odinga's 44 percent. After several months, Odinga lost his case.
