Nairobi ac­cused

The Star Early Edition - - WORLD -

NAIROBI: EU ob­servers of Kenya’s 2017 pres­i­den­tial and par­lia­men­tary elec­tions have ac­cused Nairobi of fail­ing to co-op­er­ate with their in­ves­ti­ga­tion into the con­tro­versy sur­round­ing the votes dur­ing the polls, it is re­ported.

Au­gust’s pres­i­den­tial elec­tions were an­nulled by the coun­try’s Supreme Court on the ba­sis of elec­toral ir­reg­u­lar­i­ties and a re­run or­dered for Oc­to­ber. In­cum­bent Pres­i­dent Uhuru Keny­atta won the re­run, which was largely boy­cotted by the op­po­si­tion.

The EU ob­servers said a lack of gov­ern­ment co-op­er­a­tion meant they were un­able to travel to Kenya.
