This Tuesday saw Kenyans queue for hours to cast their ballots in what was predicted to be an extremely tight presidential election. With most of the votes now counted, the incumbent president Uhuru Kenyatta
appears to have a strong lead, polling at around 55 percent, compared to 44 percent for his rival, Raila Odinga. Odinga, leader of the National Super Alliance (NASA), claims hackers broke into the election commission's systems and rigged the count in Kenyatta's favour - an allegation that sparked isolated protests in Odinga's strongholds. Ellie Mears spoke to Titus Kaloki from the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung in Nairobi about what implications the vote will have for Kenya and the wider world.
