Kenyan court orders scrutiny of electronic vote-count systems

Kenya’s Supreme Court ordered the elections commission on Monday to allow the opposition, which is disputing the results of this month’s presidential vote, have access to its computer servers and electronic devices used in the vote-count.

Election authorities say President Uhuru Kenyatta easily won a second term in the Aug. 8 polls by 1.4 million votes. A parallel tally by independent monitors based on a sample of around 2,000 polling stations produced a similar result.

But opposition leader Raila Odinga is disputing these results, which sparked scattered protests in parts of Kenya.

The protests, which dissipated within days, had raised fears that political violence could again destabilise the region’s biggest economy, as it did following a disputed election in 2007.
