Security forces tear gassed supporters of Kenyan National Super Alliance leader Raila Odinga in the western city of Kisumu, an opposition stronghold, on Wednesday, August 9. The clashes erupted shortly after Odinga claimed election fraud. At a press conference in Nairobi on Wednesday, Odinga claimed large-scale fraud, saying that hackers had tapped into the electoral commission’s servers to manipulate the vote. Incumbent President Uhuru Kenyatta was leading by more than a million votes.
