    Kenya Court Upholds Election Results

    Kenya Supreme court's six-judge bench led by Willy Mutunga (3rd L), Kenya's Chief Justice prepares to deliver a ruling on March 30, 2013 in the capital Nairobi. Kenya's Supreme court today upheld the victory of Uhuru Kenyatta in the March 4 presidential election, Mutunga said, throwing out a bid by his rival Raila Odinga for a new poll that would have revived the spectre of violence. The court unanimously ruled that the election had been fair and credible and that Kenyatta and his running mate had been validly elected.  AFP PHOTO/Tony KARUMBA

But in the Nairobi slums of Kibera and Mathare, where Odinga is popular, most people did not want to return to the devastating violence of 2007, when more than 1,200 people were killed after the election.
