Ce jeudi 26 octobre 2017 un nouveau scrutin a été organisé au Kenya, suite à l'annulation de l'élection présidentielle du 8 août dernier par la Cour suprême. Le président sortant Uhuru Kenyatta en était alors sorti vainqueur avec 54,27 % des voix, face aux 44,74 % du leader de l'opposition Raila Odinga.

La répression des manifestations par la police a encore fait trois morts chez les partisans d’Odinga, dans les bastions de l'opposition qui a appelé à boycotter l’élection. Le bilan monte à 43 personnes tuées depuis le scrutin du 8 août. Aujourd’hui on compte à l’heure qu’il est une vingtaine de blessés dont 10 par balle.

The case filed by activists to postpone the 26 October repeat poll failed at the Supreme Court on 25 October, due to lack of quorum. Supporters of Odinga, who has said he would not participate in the repeat poll, are gathering in large numbers to listen to Odinga's major announcement on 25 October to his supporters regarding the next course of action.
