There are claims that President Kenyatta’s ethnic people, the Kikuyus, are being burnt down in Kibera, although, the police has since blocked journalist access to the area and so we could not independently confirm the report.

Meanwhile, president Uhuru in his acceptance speech, had urged Kenyans to come together and shun violence.
