With Kenyan athletes facing a possible ban from the upcoming Rio Olympics for allegations of widespread doping, Kenyan President Kenyatta has signed a new anti-doping bill into law to prove that Kenya is serious about tackling cheats.
Kenya's electoral commission has announced that incumbent President Uhuru Kenyatta has won the election with 54 percent of the vote. The announcement follows claims of fraud by the opposition and a lengthy count.
Incumbent President Uhuru Kenyatta has taken a significant lead in Kenya's tense elections, according to early results. Opposition leader Raila Odinga dismissed the tally, claiming that the election had been hacked.
Opposition leader Raila Odinga has announced he will contest the election results in court. For many Kenyans, the decision to take the judicial path rather than protest on the streets comes as a relief, says Sella Oneko.
Defeated Kenyan opposition leader Raila Odinga said Wednesday he has decided to take his claims that the presidential election was rigged to the Supreme Court, after previously refusing to do so.
