    Kenyans go to the polls on Thursday for a second time this year after the Supreme Court annulled the August election victory of President Uhuru Kenyatta.

    But there are fears of a flawed vote and the consequences that could have on the country.

    Opposition leader Raila Odinga and his supporters claim the election must be delayed and reforms carried out, and have threatened to boycott the vote.

    Kenyatta and his supporters are eager to cast their ballots on schedule, and some lawyers in the country warn of a constitutional crisis if the election is not carried out by the end of the month.
