His daughter is one of a growing number of people killed during protests following the re-election of President Uhuru Kenyatta.

"He attained 25 percent of votes cast in 35 counties " Mr Chebukati, the returning officer of the presidential election, said at Bomas of Kenya- the national tallying centre, in the capital Nairobi, according to Kenya's Daily Nation newspaper.

Police killed four people in Mathare in the east part of Nairobi, as they tried to disperse Opposition protesters who were reacting to a statement by Odinga who alleged that the election had been rigged.

Kenyatta first took office in 2013, with his victory, he would be in power for the next five years. "We shall work together, we shall partner together, we shall grow together, we shall develop this country together". "And I am certain that there is no single Kenyan who would wish for us to go back to this", he said.

The dispute has raised fears among Kenyans of ethnic and political clashes of the kind seen in 2007, when 1,200 people were killed.

At the hospital Truphena Achieng said his brother had been shot and injured "and yet he was just standing outside our house where people were demonstrating. we don't know why police were shooting".

Kenyatta said he wanted to work with the opposition National Super Alliance (NASA).

In terms of numbers, the final results showed that Kenyatta secured 8,203,290 votes, while Odinga got 6,762,224 votes.


James Orengo, another senior NASA official, called the election process a "charade" and a "disaster".

'The violent protests are unlawful, ' he said.

Residents of Nairobi took to the streets, blocked roads with burning tyres and set up barricades to protest in support of Kenyan opposition leader and presidential candidate Raila Odinga, Wednesday August 9, 2017.

He spoke to a crowd in Kibera, a Nairobi slum where his supporters battled police who fired live ammunition and tear gas over the past few days.

CORNISH: So given this anger, how has Odinga responded to President Kenyatta's call for unity?

Odinga has been a long-time supporter of Somaliland recognition and promised to recognize Somaliland if he becomes President, during a 2016 speech at Chatham House.

"We commend the people of Kenya for their commitment to democracy and salute those who worked tirelessly and courageously towards holding credible elections, often in hard circumstances".
