Uhuru Kenyatta confirmed as Kenya's next president

Uhuru Kenyatta was confirmed as Kenya’s next president following a ruling by Kenya’s Supreme Court. The highly anticipated announcement comes after weeks of uncertainty surrounding the elections on 4 March. Initial tallies had placed Mr Kenyatta with 50.07 per cent of the vote, breaking the necessary 50 per cent mark to avoid a run-off by a hair-thin margin of just 8,000 votes. Raila Odinga, the current Prime Minister and Mr Kenyatta’s main opponent, brought the result to court over allegations of fraud and misconduct.
