Fears of unrest after closely fought presidential race between incumbent Uhuru Kenyatta and veteran challenger Raila Odinga
An estimated 180,000 policemen and members of the security forces are being deployed across Kenya as the country prepares to vote on Tuesday in a fiercely contested presidential election.
Voters in the east African nation will either give the incumbent, Uhuru Kenyatta, who has been in power since 2013, a second term or elect veteran opposition politician Raila Odinga.
The country is braced for widespread unrest whoever wins, after a campaign marred by hundreds of violent incidents including the murder of a high-profile election official issues with new voting technology and widespread concerns over fraud.
Kenyatta, 55, called for calm at a church service near his home in Nairobi on Sunday. Do not allow anything to drive a wedge between you. You have been good neighbours and I urge you to remain so regardless of your tribe, religion or political affiliation, the president said.
