How the international media reacted to Uhuru's win

What the foreign press said about President Uhuru Kenyatta's re-election

President Uhuru Kenyatta was on Friday evening declared the winner of the highly-contested Presidential election.

This was after he gained 54 per cent of the votes tallied to see him edge out his arch-rival and National Super Alliance (NASA) flag bearer Raila Odinga who got 44.74 per cent.

News of his victory was met with wild cheers and celebrations country wide amid a few protests in Raila’s strongholds of Kisumu County.

The media was not left behind in breaking the news that came late in the evening much to the relief of Kenyans who had anticipated for the announcement at midday.
