Two main contestants in Kenya’s presidential election, Raila Odinga and William Ruto, cast their votes Tuesday morning as Kenyans elect new leaders.
This is the third General Election to be held under the 2010 Kenyan Constitution.
Mr Odinga, contesting for president for the fifth time, according to Debunk Media, cast his vote at 10:51 a.m. (Kenyan time) at Old Kibera Primary school, his polling unit.
Mr Odinga who President Uhuru Kenyatta declared support for was welcomed by a large crowd at his polling unit.
The polls opened at 6:00 a.m. and will close by 5:00 p.m. Kenyan time.
Mr Ruto arrived at his polling station two minutes before the opening of the polls, according to Debunk Media. He said he did not want to inconvenience his neighbours.
Mr Ruto is contesting under the United Democratic Alliance (UDA) but has lost the support of his principal, President Kenyatta.
