Raila Odinga, the leader of Kenya’s opposition, has pledged to continue his campaign to overturn the result of the election last week in which Uhuru Kenyatta won a second five-year presidential term by a margin of 9%.
In his first speech since the vote, Odinga told supporters in poor neighbourhoods in Nairobi, the site of violent in clashes between protesters and police, to stay at home and out of the way of the authorities.
At least 16 people have died in the violence since Friday night, including an eight-year-old girl.
A series of election observers and western officials have called on losers in the election to accept defeat, and said they had found no evidence of “centralised manipulation”.
Odinga, 72, vowed to “remove” the government of Kenyatta and said his supporters should observe a day of mourning for casualties over the weekend on Monday rather than go to work.
