In a bitterly disputed election in Kenya, the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) on the evening of Friday, 11 August 2017, declared the incumbent President, Uhuru Kenyatta as the winner.
Shortly after, chaos erupted in the main strongholds of the opposition leader, Raila Odinga across Western Kenya and pockets of Nairobi.

In Kisumu, residents went to social media to complain of the police brutality that they faced. They said that for the whole night, only gunshots rent the air as protesters fought running battles with police.
According to several reports, official sources claimed that only 3 people had died and a few injured and admitted to the Jaramogi Oginga hospital. More reports indicated that police went from door to door beating up residents.
However, in a rebuttal today, Saturday 12 August, James Orengo, an elected Senator of Siaya County and legal counsel within the NASA Coalition, claimed that the Kenya government was implementing a state of terror and killing residents for their voting choices. He claimed that over 100 of their supporters (including 10 children) had been killed by a paramilitary unit of the government masquerading as police.

He further claimed that over 30 were dead in Mathare, Kibera and Kawangware areas of Nairobi.
When asked whether he had any evidence, he said that the police were using body bags to hide the bodies.
"They are killing, piling bodies in body bags and no one knows where they're being disposed.They're not in the morgues.-Orengo"
He even urged the media to visit the Kenyatta National Hospital where more supporters were admitted with bullet wounds.
This election saw the opposition make claims that there were massive rigging cases and fraud to ensure the incumbent president retained his seat. The NASA Coalition maintained their hard stance that they would not go to court but would use constitutional means to get justice.

Riot police prepare to pass burning barricades as they push toward protesters during clashes on August 12, 2017, in the Mathare slum of Nairobi, Kenya. Demonstrators objected to the re-election of President Uhuru Kenyatta over opposition leader and former Prime Minister Raila Odinga.
