Thursday's repeat of Kenya's presidential election has been marred by clashes between police and protesters, as well as unopened polling stations in opposition strongholds.

The re-run of Kenya's presidential election went ahead Thursday despite opposition protests and violence at a number of polling stations. At least two people were shot dead during clashes between police and protesters.

Voter turnout appeared to be significantly lower than it was in the original August 8 poll. Jacob Maina cast his vote in Dagoretti, an area of Nairobi that is considered a ruling party stronghold.

“Things were good, actually, cool, but the people did not show up like last time,” he said.

A poll worker in Nairobi’s Mathare slum said that out of 656 registered voters at that location, only about 50 people came to vote between 6 am and 11 am Thursday. She said that during the August election, more than 200 voters cast ballots during the same period.

Incumbent President Uhuru Kenyatta is making his second attempt at re-election after the Supreme Court nullified his victory in the August 8 poll, citing “irregularities and illegalities” in the transmission of results.
