Kenya Elects Indicted President and VP

iStockphoto/Thinkstock(NAIROBI, Kenya) -- Kenya’s electoral commission announced on Saturday the official winner of Monday’s presidential election is Uhuru Kenyatta, who is currently facing trial at the International Criminal Court (ICC) for crimes against humanity, as is his running mate William Ruto.  

Both men are accused of instigating violence after the last election in 2007 that killed more than 1,000 people and forced up to 600,000 to flee. 

There has been very little election-related violence in Kenya this week, but the citizens remain cautious to see how the election results are received.
