Kenya opposition wants vote planned for Saturday cancelled

NAIROBI (Reuters) - Kenya’s main opposition party warned the election commission against reorganising voting in four western counties where polls did not open on Thursday due to violence and said supporters should boycott any process that goes ahead.

“We advise the people not to walk into this trap of death. We call on the residents of these counties to stay away from these planned polls,” Musalia Mudavadi, a senior member of the NASA coalition, told reporters.
