President Uhuru Kenyatta Wins Second Term As President Of Kenya...

President Uhuru Kenyatta has won re-election in Kenya, defeating veteran opposition leader and longtime rival Raila Odinga in a tense contest.




Kenya's election commission declared Friday that the 55-year-old businessman and son of the country's founding President had received enough votes to secure a second five-year term.
Kenyatta garnered 54.27% of the final vote, similar to what he had in a preliminary count. Odinga received 44.74%.


The President, in a nationally broadcast speech, said he and his opponent were not enemies.


"We are all citizens of one republic," he said. "As with any competition, there shall always be winners and there shall be losers. But we all belong to one great nation called Kenya."
Kenyatta said he wanted to work with the opposition National Super Alliance (NASA).


"I extend a hand of partnership knowing fully well that this country needs all of us pulling together in order for us to succeed," he said.


Congratulations came from Rwandan President Paul Kagame, who applauded Kenyatta on Twitter "for a successful election and the trust Kenyans have placed in you!"


The President told his countrymen there was no need for violence.
The nation's top elections official, Wafula Chebukati, said the vote was carried out in a "free, fair and credible manner."
