Vote Counting Under Way in Kenyan Presidential Elections (VOA News, 28 December 2007)

Vote-counting is under way in Kenya following presidential and parliamentary elections, and the first official results are expected later Friday.

About 14 million Kenyans were eligible to cast ballots Thursday in a close presidential race between the incumbent, Mwai Kibaki, and his main challenger, Raila Odinga.

Witnesses say voter turnout appeared to be high, but no official figures have been released. According to unofficial returns announced on Kenyan television, Odinga is holding a commanding lead over Mr. Kibaki.
