Kenya`s opposition leader Raila Odinga has described the recent presidential re-run election results as a “sham” and has called for another vote to be held within 90 days.

Odinga previously urged his supporters to boycott the presidential election re-run therefore generating deadly crashes between his supporters and the police.

At least eight people have been killed by police in the protests since the vote and several opposition strongholds had to postpone voting because of security problem.

Speaking to the Associated Press in his home in an affluent Nairobi suburb, Mr Odinga warned Kenya was in “grave danger” following the August election rerun and that low voter turnout meant the latest poll was not valid.

It was a Uhuru versus Uhuru election: Odinga

Dismissing the vote, Mr Odinga added: “It was basically Uhuru versus Uhuru.”

The 72-year-old opposition leader said he is open to dialogue with the Kenyatta camp about holding what he called free and fair elections.

“We are not unwilling to talk but the agenda will still be the same agenda — how to create a level playing field so that an election can be held in 90 days,” he said.

With more than 90 per cent of the votes counted, the electoral commission said Kenyatta had won 7.1 million votes.

But Mr Odinga doubted the results and accused the electoral commission of boosting the number of votes for Mr Kenyatta.

Thursday’s election was the second time Kenyan voters went to the polls in three months after Mr Odinga, a Luo, successfully challenged his defeat in the August election.

Meanwhile, there are fears of violent activities in most parts of the country.
