A call by opposition leader Raila Odinga for Kenyans to stay at home and not report to work was ignored, as thousands streamed to the capital on Monday, days after electoral commission announced the election results which confirmed a win for incumbent President Uhuru Kenyatta.
On Sunday, Odinga called for a strike to support his claim to the presidency and accused the ruling party of “spilling the blood of innocent people” as he brushed off growing pressure to concede election defeat.
However many Kenyans didn’t agree with the National Super Alliance leader’s call for boycott and said they wanted life to move on.
The election commission on Friday declared Kenyatta the winner of the presidential poll by 1.4 million votes.
International observers say Tuesday’s vote was largely fair, and a parallel tally by domestic monitors supported the outcome.
