Court Upholds Kenyatta's Presidential Victory - 31 Mar 2013
Images relating to the presidential elections in Kenya, including the latest of reactions to the news that Kenya's Supreme Court upheld Uhuru Kenyatta's presidential election victory on Saturday. His defeated rival Raila Odinga accepted the ruling, helping douse tensions after tribal violence blighted the election five years ago.

The decision cleared the way for Kenya's richest man to take the top job in east Africa's biggest economy, but left Western powers with the headache of dealing with a leader charged with crimes against humanity at the International Criminal Court.

Western donors, worried about a nation seen as a vital ally in the regional battle against militant Islam, also congratulated Kenyatta. But they have said his indictment in the Hague will complicate their relations.

Counting since Monday's voting has been slow and complicated by hitches in a new electronic system.
