Who will be Kenya’s next leader?

It’s a two-horse race for the presidency as Uhuru Kenyatta steps down.

Kenyans go to the polls on Tuesday to choose a new president.

Former Prime Minister Raila Odinga and current Vice President William Ruto are the frontrunners. It’s a close race and analysts say the election could go to a runoff for the first time.

Many voters, frustrated by corruption and skyrocketing prices, are calling for change.

Previous elections were marred by violence. Will it be different this time? And what’s at stake in this vote?
