One shot dead in Kenya election protests, police say

Kenyatta garnered 8,203,290 votes representing 54.27% against NASA's Raila Odinga who got 6,762,224 votes representing 44.74%.

As celebrations began in pro-government areas after Uhuru Kenyatta was declared the victor of the presidential election, supporters of opposition leader Raila Odinga poured onto the streets in parts of Nairobi and Kisumu to protest the outcome.

The protest in opposition strongholds was a sharp contrast to the jubilation of Uhuru Kenyatta's supporters who were joined by others of the presidential coalition.

Kenyatta, the 55-year-old son of Kenya's first president after independence from Britain, appealed for calm and unity.

Hundreds of riot police were in the streets of the capital, Nairobi, amid fears of further protests by opposition supporters, who called the vote a "charade" and said challenging the outcome in court wasn't an option.

"We are not going to be party to it".

After an acrimonious campaign, Kenyatta used his re-election speech to reach out to Odinga and his supporters on Friday night, saying he wanted to work with them "in the service of Kenya".

Election Observation Group (Elog) has said presidential results announced by the electoral body Friday evening matches their own parallel vote tabulation.

A government official told reporters another man was killed in Kisumu county, centre of serious post-election ethnic violence in 2007 in which 1,200 people were killed and 600,000 displaced.

The gunfire rang out in the Nairobi slum of Kibera and in the southwestern city of Kisumu, the witnesses said.

"The judicial process, the judicial system of Kenya and the election laws themselves make full and adequate provision for accountability in this election", said Kerry, an election observer for the Carter Center.

"President Kenyatta and I share a common vision of peace, stability and economic growth for our two countries and the region as a whole", he said.

The election commission affirmed there was a hacking attempt but said it failed, and that Odinga's camp had no right to declare him the victor.

"Everyone has a right to peaceful protest and they must not be hurt, injured or killed for exercising that right", Muthoni Wanyeki, the organization's regional director, said in a statement.

Kenyans resumed normal activities on Saturday after several weeks of election tension across the country. At least three people were killed in clashes between police and opposition supporters this week.
