Kenya’s Deputy Prime Minister Uhuru Kenyatta appears to have won the presidential election by the tightest of margins, provisional results indicate.
After all the votes were counted he had polled 50.03% of the vote, 4,109 votes over the threshold required for outright victory.
But the official result will not come until 11:00 on Saturday (08:00 GMT).
Rival candidate Raila Odinga is likely to file a legal challenge if he loses.
Mr Kenyatta won 6,173,433 votes out of a total of 12,338,667, well ahead of the prime minister, who polled 5,340,546 – or 43.28% of the vote.
However, both candidates have complained of irregularities during the course of the count, since Monday’s election.
