Kenya’s Upcoming Elections

In Kenya elections are often controversial, even violent. Previous polls have been marred by allegations of fraud and deadly clashes. So Kenyans are hoping next month's vote will be different. While four candidates will be on the ballot, the real battle is between former prime minister Raila Odinga and Deputy President William Ruto. Odinga is vying for the presidency for a fifth time, and even has the backing of his former rival and incumbent President Uhurru Kenyatta.
