Kenyan opposition to accept results in election servers if given access

Former U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry urged Kenyans not to take to the streets to protest the outcome of the country's elections and said politicians should work within the rule of law to resolve any dispute.

Odinga rejected the early results of Tuesday's vote and said the details were "fake", because the authorities had failed to present documents verifying the results, BBC reported.

Odinga claims the login credentials used to access the electoral database and change the totals belonged to an election official who was murdered after seemingly being tortured last month.

On Wednesday, at least three people were shot and killed in confrontations between security forces and opposition supporters in several areas of Kenya, East Africa's commercial hub whose stability is a key concern for the region.

The opposition leader, running in his fourth presidential election, claimed that the systems of the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) were hacked using the identity of Chris Msando, the late head of IT at the IEBC. "But we believe that the election's commission in Kenya has put together a process that will allow each and every vote's integrity to be proven", Kerry said, adding that there were "little aberrations here and there". He claimed both elections were rigged.

The mission who visited 464 polling stations across the country, said Tuesday vote, "was consistent with policies of the African Union" but voter education was insufficient.

Global observers praised the handling of the election, with the European Union saying it had seen no sign of manipulation despite opposition complaints and scattered protests. "This time we caught them", he tweeted.

A senior police officer, who spoke on condition of anonymity, confirmed that two people had been killed in the slum of Mathare in Nairobi on Wednesday.

"I wish to take this opportunity to confirm that our elections management system is secure".

Malikk added: "The most important issues are ahead of us: Does Odinga concede peacefully?"

Odinga, a former prime minister, blamed Kenyatta's Jubilee Party for the alleged hacking.

The allegations of fraud and corruption within the voting process has stirred protests, some violent, throughout the country as protesters and police clash. "Nobody knows what he wants".
