Kenyan presidential vote goes to wire
The latest tally of votes showed leading candidate, Uhuru Kenyatta, the deputy prime minister, on 49.93 per cent, with nearly 90 per cent of polling stations counted. Reaching the 50 per cent mark would see him avoid a run-off against rival candidate, prime minister Raila Odinga.
A western observer said the consensus was forming around the belief that Mr Kenyatta was likely to win outright.
