Kenyan presidential contender Raila Odinga didn’t provide tangible evidence to support his challenge to the outcome of the election, a voting official said. Chairman of the Kenyan Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission Issack Hassan declared Deputy Prime Minister Uhuru Kenyatta beat Prime Minister Odinga in the March 4 election.
Odinga challenged the outcome of the election, saying the election results were inflated in some districts. Hassan said there wasn’t much to support the prime minister’s claims, however.
“The lack of credible and tangible evidence on the part of the petitioner underscores the terminal structural weakness of the petition,” Hassan was quoted by The Daily Nation newspaper in Kenya as saying.
