Kenya: Riots and Celebrations as President Kenyatta Wins Election

At least 24 killed in post-election violence

The Kenya national commission on human rights says at least 24 people have been killed in post-election violence. Riots and celebrations have been reported across Kenya, after the electoral commission announced the President Kenyatta has won a second term in office. The oppositional candidate was quick to claim the vote was rigged, sparking riots in Nairobi amid a wave of celebrations. Businesses have been torches, with fires set in slums and towns. Rio police were deployed to the Kawangware slum in Nairobi and met protesters with tear gas. Clashes between police and protesters are ongoing.

Those operating or residing in Kenya are advised to anticipate further protest-related violence. Kenya experienced significant post-election violence in 2007. Rallies, demonstrations and protests may occur with little notice and even those intended to be peaceful can escalate into violence. As with all large events, there is also the opportunity for criminal elements or terrorists to target participants and visitors. Avoid all large gatherings of people and seek shelter if tensions further escalate.
