There have been dozens of deaths following the country's disputed presidential poll. Battles broke out after the announcement of the results. Official figures made the incumbent, Uhuru Kenyatta, the winner - but the opposition is crying foul.
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.
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.
Friday's announcement that President Kenyatta had been re-elected sparked two days of violent protests that has left as many as 24 people dead. But as of Sunday calm appears to have returned to the East African country.
A call to Kenyans to skip work Monday by veteran opposition leader Raila Odinga has followed urgings from the European Union that he concede defeat. Nairobi has seen brief clashes on an otherwise quiet Sunday.
