At least 3 killed in Kenya post-election violence

Post-election violence in Kenya has led to the death of three people after opposition leader, Raila Odinga rejected results.

Two people were shot dead in the capital Nairobi on Wednesday, said the city’s police chief Japheth Koome.

Koome claimed citizens took advantage of the protests to steal.

At least one more person was shot dead earlier in the day in South Mugirango constituency in Kisii County during a clash with the security forces, AP news agency reported.

A demonstrator, Sebastian Omolo said police used tear gas and shot Odinga’s supporters in his hometown.

“He is not accepting the results and that is why we are on the streets, but police have started shooting,” Omolo said.

Kisumu shopkeeper Festus Odhiambo said he was praying for peace even as protesters blocked roads into city slums with bonfires and boulders.

Odinga rejected the partial results of the presidential polls, saying hackers infiltrated the database of Kenya’s election body to manipulate the “democratic process”.
