Kenya opposition presidential candidate Raila Odinga has dismissed the initial results, showing the incumbent leader ahead of him, saying that the government has fraudulently presented a “fictitious and fake” outcome against the will of the voters.

According to the results declared online, President Uhuru Kenyatta secured 54.5% of the votes against Odinga's 44.6% with 91% votes counted, notes the BBC.

One of the opposition leaders also claimed that the identity of a murdered election official was misused to rig the presidential elections, writes Sky News.
