Kenyatta received nearly 7. Kenyatta also won the first election, in August, by 1. But the opposition leader, Raila Odinga, challenged the results, and the Supreme Court nullified the election in September, citing irregularities. Backers of Mr. Kenyatta interpreted both of his wins as broad national support for the president, but opposition supporters said they had twice been disenfranchised by a process that lacked credibility. Odinga withdrew from the second election two weeks before the vote, arguing that the electoral commission could not oversee a free and fair process, and he called on his supporters to boycott. His name nevertheless appeared on the ballot, and he collected just over 73, votes, compared with nearly seven million in August.
But this time, figures across the Kenyan political landscape, including the president whose victory was wiped away, appeared to accept the decision and called on supporters to do the same.

It was a tense Wednesday night Jan. The state-run Kenya Broadcasting Corporation and K24 continued to operate. Afterwards, officials said the privately-owned broadcasting outlets would remain shut as the government investigated their complicity with the opposition in subverting and overthrowing the lawfully-elected government of president Uhuru Kenyatta. The directive drew surprise and condemnation in Kenya and across the world, with many saying it demonstrated increasing censorship in a nation hailed for its vibrant media industry. Observers also say the decision constituted not only an infringement on the freedom of the press but could also contribute to tensions across the country as Kenyans, eager to follow what was happening in the capital, were deprived of the chance to scrutinize their own democratic process. The recent shutdown puts the media fraternity at the center of the tense political reality that Kenya has experienced over the last year. A highly-contested election in August and repeat election in October were both defined by violence, fake news , allegations of electoral fraud and hacking, and the annulment of the first presidential results.
From our Special Correspondent Massimo A. Alberizzi Chakama and Malindi, 2 august Without a doubt, the kidnappers were lookin g for Silvia and she alone.
