At least one person was killed when demonstrators all over Kenya took to the streets demanding a change of leadership at the electoral commission ahead of a vote due next year.
Kenya's Supreme Court has upheld the re-election of President Uhuru Kenyatta, dismissing petitions to overturn the vote. Tensions remain high in Kenya after weeks of political unrest have left dozens dead.
Violent clashes in Nairobi have left at least five people dead when live ammunition was fired into crowds of opposition supporters. The protesters had rallied to welcome back opposition leader Raila Odinga.
Kenya's top court has cleared the way for President Kenyatta to serve a second term. But low voter turnout and threats against the judges have left critics doubtful that his claim to the presidency is legitimate.
The run-up to Kenya's repeat presidential election has been fraught with tension. As the country's Supreme Court said it couldn't hear a petition to postpone the vote, observers said they fear a new outbreak of violence.
