We’ll keep you updated as the story unfolds.
On Friday, August 11th, the people of Kenya re-elected President Uhuru Kenyatta for a second five-year term as their president. Although Kenya’s election committee declared that President Uhuru Kenyatta was in fact the winner, his rival Raila Odinga cried foul and insisted that the election had been hacked. Why? He doesn’t trust that the paper forms of the ballots were turned into the capital in its original form. In other words, Mr. Odinga thinks that the paper ballots might have been changed, or the ones collected could have been fake. Despite these claims, leaders of neighboring countries have offered their congratulations to President Uhuru Kenyatta and the president himself has asked that the country come together so that Kenya can have an even brighter and more successful future.
