Kenya's Odinga takes election case to court

Prime Minister Raila Odinga alleges the poll was marred by fraud, and that vote tallies were tampered with.

    Kenya's outgoing Prime Minister Raila Odinga is refusing to accept defeat in last week’s elections.

    Speaking on live television, he announced on Thursday he would appeal the result in Kenya's highest court.

    If the court agrees with his appeal, it may order votes be recounted - which may lead to a run-off poll between Odinga and his President-elect Uhuru Kenyatta.
