BREAKING: Uhuru Kenyatta re-elected president of Kenya

Kenya's President Uhuru Kenyatta has been re-elected following Tuesday's vote, the national electoral commission announced Friday evening.

Mr. Kenyatta took 54.27% of votes, ahead of his rival Raila Odinga, with 44.7%.

But the opposition coalition rejected the commission's announcement before the results were declared, calling the process a “charade".

Hundreds of police in anti-riot gear are in the streets of the capital, Nairobi, amid fears of further protests by supporters of opposition candidate Raila Odinga who claims the vote was rigged.

Opposition supporters burned tires and blocked roads in several areas.
