Kenyan Presidential Fix: Mwai Fiddles, Nairobi Burns

BBC online carries a good summary of the problems with the presidential ballot in Kenya. Although his party has but 33 MPs of c 200 the incumbent President Mwai has defied 50 or more polls and studies to emerge triumphant. Anomalies include a 115% turnout in one constituency and a 50% hike in votes for Mwai between local declaration and Nairobi coronation. BBC page HERE.

The melting away of the ballot rigging worries we reported on the eve of the vote to a comfortable win for Odinga "if the lead is maintained" was quite simply too good to be true.

President Mwacky Backy should tell his people to mellow.

And they'd say ... who are you to tell us anything you old fraud? you just got stuffed in an election.

It's like Nick Clegg declaring himself PM with just 50 MPs.

Mwai has only 33 of 200.
