Rights Group Calls Kenya to Investigate Police Killings of Pro-opposition Protesters

2013 vs 2017: How the numbers have changed so far

Kenyan police have shot two people dead and injured five more during rioting after President Uhuru Kenyatta was declared the victor in national elections.

Acting Interior Minister Fred Matiang'i said Saturday that "criminal elements have attempted to take advantage of the situation to loot and destroy property".

In Nairobi, a young girl was shot dead by police firing "sporadic shots" at protesters in Mathare, a witness said.

A Kenyan human rights group says 24 people have been killed by police gunfire during protests since disputed elections on Tuesday.

IGAD Executive Secretary Mahboub Maalim in his statement said Kenya plays a pivotal role in regional integration and socio-economic development which he expects to continue following the election. He believes elections in 2007, 2013 and now 2017 were snatched away from him.

Odinga's ethnic Luo supporters - and their allies from other groups - believe they have been denied political power by elites from the Kikuyus, the same ethnic group as Kenyatta, the country's biggest community.

Farmajo expressed confidence that the re-election of President Kenyatta would foster further cooperation on bilateral and diplomatic relations between Somalia and Kenya.

Another added: "NASA supporters please come lets build Kenya together".




On Thursday, worldwide election observers, such as former U.S Secretary of State John Kerry, termed the recent presidential and parliamentary polls in Kenya as credible. "And I am certain that there is no single Kenyan who would wish for us to go back to this".

Violence has intensified following the Kenyan election, with at least nine people dying in one area of Nairobi and police using tear gas on a convoy of opposition officials.

Martin Kivuva, head of the Kenya Conference of Catholics Bishops (KCCB), urged Kenyatta to move fast to "unite the seemingly divided nation after the elections".

There are fears that a possible tribal war may break out in Kenya after the opposition party led by Odinga refused the outcome of Tuesdays election demanding that the electoral commission granted it access to see raw data on its computer servers before it can accept defeat.

On Thursday it demanded Odinga be declared president. the opposition leader has yet to speak out since the final result was declared.

"We have been there before".

It also said hacking claims by Nasa should be investigated.
