COMING UP:Share Opener Variant 1



> Fury spilling onto the streets of Kenya's capital, Nairobi, on Wednesday. These protesters chanting Uhuru must go. That's incumbent President Uhuru Kenyatta, who's facing allegations of massive fraud in the country's presidential election. Opposition leader Rila Odinga told media on Wednesday hackers had broken into the election commission's computer systems overnight.
>> The looks of fraud and fabrication of results was massive and extensive to the extent that results of the 47 counties were manipulated.>> Responding to the claims, the election commission said the voting process was free and fair. But it is now investigating whether it's computer system was hacked.
The country went to the polls on Tuesday, voting in a presidential race pollsters said was neck and neck. But early results quickly gave Kenyatta a commanding lead. With more than 80% of results reported, he was ahead by a margin of nearly 1.4 million ballots. Odinga doesn't agree with those numbers, saying his only tally puts him well in front.
Speaking at the news conference, he told his supporters to remain calm, but added, quote, I don't control the people. Shortly afterwards, police were called to disperse Odinga supporters from the streets of Kisumu, the western city a stronghold of the opposition leader.
Peace reigns and a peace will only reign if they can accept to our demands.
>> A decade ago, Odinga cried foul in an election marred by major irregularities. And around 1,200 people were killed in a campaign of ethnic violence that followed. Kenyan officials are working to calm tensions, warning they will act against online agitators, and telling people to go about their business as normal while the votes are counted.
