Kenya's Opposition Group to Move to Court to Challenge Presidential Election Results

The end of campaigns and subsequent elections on Tuesday came as a huge relief for politicians who were gunning for various offices

"Kenyans have said that the election is behind them, the majority have returned to work", he said, as the capital Nairobi returned to a level of business not seen since polling day, despite Odinga's call for people to stay away from work to mourn those killed in protests. She says she accompanied the baby's body to the mortuary in the city of Kisumu.

He also called for peaceful forms of protest against the victory of his opponent President Uhuru Kenyatta.

Opposition allegations that the elections were rigged unleashed a deadly wave of protests.

Meanwhile, the Kenya Human Rights Commission, or KHRC, says it is being targeted for closure by the state regulator, the NGO Coordination Board. They have not commented on this case.

"State cracks down on civil society", reported the Star newspaper which pointed out that the government is shutting down civil society groups that questioned the disputed presidential election, their officials said yesterday.

A statement from Nasa national campaign chairman Musalia Mudavadi said negotiations had taken longer than expected. Odinga claims that hackers infiltrated the electoral commission's systems and manipulated the results.

Odinga's Coalition has rejected the results, claiming massive fraud, and said it will not go to court to challenge them.

"We will show the world how the figures were cooked and Uhuru Kenyatta declared the victor", Mr Odinga said at Okoa Kenya offices in the capital Nairobi.

Kiai said the Africorg is not registered as non-governmental organization but as a company which falls under a different oversight authority.

The National Super Alliance (NASA) has resolved to move to the Supreme Court to challenge results of Kenya's presidential election.

KHRC executive director George Kegoro spoke to reporters Tuesday.

"The availability of results forms at all levels enables trust by allowing all stakeholders to have confidence in and insight into the totals announced", the observer mission said in a statement issued in Nairobi.

Zeid Ra'ad al-Hussein said Tuesday that the government has the responsibility to ensure that security forces exercise restraint.

Police and tax authorities on Wednesday raided the Africa Centre for Open Governance (AfriCOG), one of the organizations that has regularly highlighted problems with preparations for the August 8 vote.
