A Look at Kenya's Election with Assumpta Oturu

Written by stephanie case on . Posted in Front News

Violence broke out in Kenya after the opposition candidate in the country's presidential election has claimed massive voter fraud. Raila Odinga, in his fourth presidential run, challenged incumbent Uhuru Kenyatta in Tuesday's vote. A local human rights commission says it has found discrepancies between results announced by the government's election commission and paper forms signed at a polling station. To add to the tension: last week, a senior election official in charge of voting technology, Chrisopher Msando, was found tortured and killed.

Our guest in studio is Assumpta Oturu, host of "Spotlight Africa" on Pacifica Radio's KPFK in Los Angeles.
