Top Kenya official says life returning to normal

News24 - Sunday 13th August, 2017

Nairobi - A top Kenyan official says life has largely returned to normal following disputed elections, although he acknowledges some "incidents of lawlessness" in several opposition areas where protests are occurring.

Acting Interior Minister Fred Matiang'i said on Saturday that "criminal elements have attempted to take advantage of the situation to loot and destroy property."

Matiang'i is also criticising what he calls "inflammatory messages" on social media designed to sow discord during the tense election period.

Kenyan police say they shot and killed two people during riots overnight by opposition supporters after President Uhuru Kenyatta was declared the winner in elections overshadowed by fraud allegations.

The deaths occurred on the outskirts of Kisumu, a city where opposition leader Raila Odinga has strong support.
