USA ambassador urges peace in Kenya elections

"Her plan was very well calculated and she moved her family and luggage ahead of the Dubai trip while tricking the rest of the IEBC commissioners that she would join them only to land in New York", Raila said.

The heads of the United Nations and the African Union (AU) have expressed their organizations' commitment to assist Kenya in ensuring a credible and transparent process in the upcoming presidential election rerun. "No one is obliged to stand for office, or to vote if they do not wish to", said Godec.

Standoff between President Uhuru Kenyatta and opposition leader Raila Odinga continued to divide Kenya as the Thursday repeat elections draw near.

The Supreme Court annulled results of the August poll over irregularities.

Kenyatta later said he is ready for the elections and has no demands on IEBC, other than the electoral body meeting its obligation of conducting fresh presidential elections on October 26 as ordered by the Supreme Court.

"We made clear that we have no demands or conditions on this subject".

"Inflammatory rhetoric, attacks on institutions, and growing insecurity all make holding a credible and fair poll more difficult.it is unsafe, and it must stop".

"We resume our picketing at IEBC (election board) offices countrywide on Tuesday and Wednesday".

They said the drop prompted the central bank to intervene, pumping in dollars to curb the volatility.

They insisted that the election must be held in accord with the Constitution and laws, as interpreted by the courts and pleaded with President Uhuru Kenyatta not to sign the electoral law amendments that are now on his desk.

Fred Matiang'i, a Cabinet secretary in charge of internal security, on Monday condemned what he called the "politics of anarchy" and said any Kenyans who choose to demonstrate should do so peacefully.

About 70 people have been killed in violence since the election commission declared President Uhuru Kenyatta the victor of elections on 8 August election.

Last week, a senior electoral commission official fled to the USA amid death threats.

The IEBC insists that the election will take place despite reports of attacks on IEBC officers in some opposition strongholds.
