Election officials are counting the ballots in the hotly contested presidential and parliamentary elections.
March 8, 2013 Torn election posters litter the streets of the Kibera slum of Nairobi. Kenyans on Monday held their first presidential vote since the nation’s disputed 2007 election spawned violence that killed more than 1,000 people. Kenya’s last ballots for its presidential race were being counted Friday and Uhuru Kenyatta, the leading candidate, saw his percentage yo-yo above and below the crucial 50 percent mark that would hand him an outright win and avoid a runoff.
