Kenya Supreme Court upholds President Uhuru Kenyatta's victory in last month's election re-run



Kenya's Supreme Court has upheld President Uhuru Kenyatta's victory in last month's election re-run, which was boycotted by the main opposition.

 
Judges dismissed two petitions challenging the poll, opening the way for Mr Kenyatta to be inaugurated for a second term next week.


The opposition said the ruling had been given under "duress", and it would not recognise the new government.


Mr Kenyatta won with 98% of the vote with turnout at 39%.
