Voting is taking place in Kenya’s repeat presidential polls in the east african country.
Controversy had surrounded the possibility of the polls going ahead with main opposition challenger Raila Odinga withdrawing from the polls.
Odinga had been seeking major changes within the electoral commission’s staff and operations to guarantee a fair poll.
And a bid to delay the election fell apart after only two out of seven Supreme Court judges showed up for a hearing.
In today’s election 7 candidates are in the race to become Kenya’s fifth president, after the August election which was won by incumbent
President Uhuru Kenyatta was nullified by the supreme court citing irregularities in the process.
