A day after Kenya’s presidential vote, there was no doubt about the winner.
Preliminary results showed President Uhuru Kenyatta receiving 98 percent of the ballots cast in the election, which was held after an earlier result was annulled because of irregularities.
What was less clear is how this country, one of sub-Saharan Africa’s most influential nations, will emerge from a political crisis.
Opposition leader Raila Odinga had boycotted Thursday‘s election, claiming that the country was not ready to hold a credible poll after the bungled August vote.
Kenyans waited nervously to see how his supporters would react once Kenyatta’s reelection was announced.
On Thursday and Friday, some of them lobbed rocks at police and screamed “No Raila, no peace.”
