Kenya Tenses as Election Results Come In

Hosted by  • 

After Kenya's presidential election in 2007, claims of vote rigging led to the deaths of more than 1000 people. When it was over, Uhuru Kenyatta was named deputy prime minister of a coalition government — but he was also indicted by the International Criminal Court for inciting the violence. After Monday's presidential election, Kenyatta still leads in the vote count. His opponent is his ostensible boss, Prime Minister Raila Odinga. We hear the background and the prospects for violence.
