Kenya's election took an ominous turn Wednesday as violent protests erupted in the capital and elsewhere after opposition leader Raila Odinga alleged fraud, saying hackers used the identity of a murdered official to infiltrate the database of the country's election commission and manipulate results.Many parts of Kenya, East Africa's commercial hub, were calm a day after the elections for president and more than 1,800 other posts down to the county level.Odinga lost that election; he also lost the 2013 vote to Kenyatta and took allegations of vote tampering to the Supreme Court, which rejected his case.Kenya's election commission said it will investigate Odinga's allegations.Kenyatta was leading with 54.35 percent and Odinga had 44.77 percent after votes at more than 39,320 of the 40,883 polling stations were counted, according to the election commission.
