- Story Text: Supporters of Kenya President and ruling Jubilee Party filled Uhuru Park in the capital city of Nairobi on Friday (August 4), three days ahead of general election.
Incumbent President Uhuru Kenyatta, running against his archrival, veteran opposition leader Raila Odinga, urged voters to remain peaceful and united during Tuesday (August 8) election, which comes a decade since 1,200 people were killed in ethnic unrest after a disputed election.
Final polls have shown a tight race between both candidates and jitters over the polls intensified this week with the torture and murder of a senior election commission official.
Voters in the East African nation of 49 million will pick a president, members of parliament and regional authorities on Tuesday.
