    Kenya's opposition leader Raila Odinga has branded the presidential election rerun a sham and called for a new poll within 90 days.

    The repeat vote has been suspended in areas considered opposition strongholds due to election-related violence between Kenyatta and Raila's supporters, which has most Kenyans concerned.

    The country's political crisis has left at least 49 people dead since August and is considered Kenya's worst crisis since a 2007 vote sparked months of post-election violence and left 1,100 people dead.

    Al Jazeera's Mohammed Adow reports from Nairobi.
