Raila Odinga, Uhuru Kenyatta to face off on October 17 in fresh election

President Uhuru Kenyatta and his arch political rival Raila Odinga will face off in a fresh presidential election on October 17. This means Uhuru, the Jubilee Party candidate, and Raila, the National Super Alliance (NASA) flag bearer, have just 41 days to woo 19.6 million registered voters.
However, the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) has determined that only Raila, the presidential results petitioner, and Uhuru, the third respondent in the Supreme Court case, shall appear on the ballot. Kenyans will be going back to vote following last week’s nullification of Uhuru’s re-election by the Supreme Court.
