Kenya set for tight security ahead of polls

Plan to deploy 100,000 police officers across country during election aims to counter recent series of attacks.

    One of Kenya’s biggest challenges as the country prepares to hold polls is maintaining security.

    The country has been rocked by a series of grenade attacks and ethnic violence, claiming the lives of 200 people since August 2012.

    Authorities plan to deploy 99,000 police officers nationwide during Monday's election.
