Incumbent Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta was officially declared re-elected with 54.27 percent of the vote, the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) said Friday.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Raila Odinga, the candidate from Kenyan opposition National Super Alliance (NASA), attained 44.7 percent.

"Uhuru Kenyatta declared President elect after attaining 8,203,290 (54.27%) votes," the IEBC said on its Twitter.

Since the first preliminary results of the Tuesday elections began to appear, NASA has questioned them, alleging that the voting system could be hacked. The IEBC denied allegations.
