Obama llama a elecciones “pacíficas y creíbles” en Kenia

Luego de la denuncia, los primeros disturbios empezaron en Kibera y otros suburbios de la capital, Nairobi, donde se desplegó un gran número de policías ante el ambiente de tensión que se respira en sus calles.

En otros puntos del país, como en Kisumu (oeste), la policía también lanzó gas lacrimógeno para dispersar a un pequeño grupo de manifestantes que salieron a la calle en apoyo a Odinga.

La Comisión Electoral de Kenia informó que el presidente Kenyatta se perfila como ganador de las elecciones generales de ayer martes con el 54.8 por ciento de los votos emitido, una ventaja de más de diez punto sobre Odinga, quien aseguró el 44.4 por ciento de la votación, tras el conteo del 94.0 por ciento de los sufragios.

PM Modi Looking Forward For Ivanka Trump's Attendance at Global Entrepreneurship Summit
According to Indian Express, PM Modi had personally invited Ivanka for the GES 2017 event during his meeting with Trump this year. Prime Minister then had also invited President Trump and his family.

El miedo siempre acompaña las citas electorales en Kenia, pero el ajustado duelo entre el presidente saliente, Uhuru Kenyatta, y el líder de la oposición, Raila Odinga, intensifica los temores de actos de violencia.

Después de su denuncia pública, Odinga llamó a los kenianos a "no aceptar" los resultados y, si bien les pidió que mantuvieran la calma, añadió: "Yo no puedo controlar la voluntad del pueblo".

Una compañía estadounidense que se especializa en el manejo de información electoral confirmó ayer que su director general fue detenido en Kenia y que enfrenta una posible deportación antes de las elecciones presidenciales del martes, después de haber trabajado en la campaña de la oposición. "Por favor, debemos abstenernos de cualquier actividad que ponga en peligro la vida de los demás o la estabilidad del país", afirmó el ministro del Interior en funciones, Fred Matiang'i, en un rueda de prensa. "El sistema ha fracasado". Las alegaciones de Odinga no son un fenómeno nuevo en las elecciones presiden ciales kenianas, signadas por choques entre seguidores de los principales aspirantes a la silla presidencial.

Zidane could also bring in playmaker Isco , and return to a 4-3-3 system by giving Cristiano Ronaldo a first start of the season. Casemiro struck an opener before Isco - a player once linked with a move to Old Trafford - doubled Los Blancos' lead.

Raila Odinga, de 72 años y candidato de la National Super Alliance (NASA), una coalición de oposición que agrupa a cinco partidos, se presenta a la presidencial por cuarta y última vez. Se considera que otros candidatos no parecen que tengan mucha suerte.

El voto en Kenia suele basarse en sentimientos de pertenencia étnica, más que en programas. Kenyatta pertenece a la etnia kikuyu y Odinga a la luo.

Los cerca de 19,6 millones de electores de esta excolonia británica de 48 millones de habitantes, debían elegir también gobernadores, diputados, senadores, representantes locales y representantes de mujeres en la Asamblea.
