Kenyatta Narrowly Wins Kenyan Election

Despite charges of crimes against humanity, Uhuru Kenyatta raked in 50.3 percent of votes in Kenya's presidential election, according to preliminary results posted early Saturday. A runoff was avoided by just 4,099 votes out of the 12.3 million cast. The controversial margin will likely spur a in a legal challenge from Kenyatta's main rival, Prime Minister Raila Odinga, whose party has already claimed that votes were "doctored." The last time Odinga declared he was cheated, at the end of the last presidential election in 2007, it resulted in widespread ethnic violence that killed more than 1,000 Kenyans and drove several hundred thousand from their homes. The official tally will be confirmed at 11am on Saturday in Nairobi by Kenya's Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission.
