    President Uhuru Kenyatta is running for a second shot at leading Kenya.

    Uhuru, as he is known, took office in 2013 following a disputed election.

    His time in office has been marred by allegations of corruption and instigating violence.

    But he remains one of the two frontrunners in Tuesday's vote.

    Al Jazeera's Fahmida Miller reports Nairobi.
