Following the announcement of the the Presidential Election in Kenya by the Electoral body which declared incumbent President Uhuru Kenyatta as the winner, violent protests have broken out at the stronghold of his opponent, Raila Odinga.

At Kibera slum in Nairobi, protesters are confronting police in violent protests. Gunshots are heard ringing out in the night with ambulances blazing up and down the roads. Police helicopters are also hovering above the slum, the largest in all of East Africa.

It is the same thing in Kisumu county, another Odinga stronghold where gunshots are heard and protesters are in the streets.

One resident told a European journalist that homes of President Kenyatta’s ethnic people, the Kikuyus, are being burnt down in Kibera, SaharaReporters could not independently confirm the report.

In his acceptance speech, President Kenyatta had urged Kenyans to come together and shun violence. But before the acceptance speech his opponent, Odinga, disappeared to an unknown destination, as his party rejected the result even before it was even announced and declared its intention not to take the case to court but to leave matters in the hands of the Kenyan people.
