Kenya candidates hail from powerful dynasties

Uhuru Kenyatta and Raila Odinga, favourites to win, lead Kenya's most prominent political dynasties.

    The favourites to win in Kenya's presidential election are Uhuru Kenyatta and Raila Odinga, the heads of Kenya's most prominent political dynasties.

    They will need to secure a clear 51 percent majority in the first round to avoid a run-off.

    As Nazanine Moshiri reports, one of them will become only the fourth Kenyan president in fifty years.
