Elections in Kenya, after months of words, tensions, conjectures and media proclamations, we are here on the eve.
Hundreds of meetings, rallies, demonstrations and meetings, without even a serious injuries and a few scuffs across the country, and with the only "noir" note of the murder of a manager of the Electoral Commission (you still do not know the motive ), 24 hours from the vote reigns a great uncertainty.

Local Kenyatta and Ruto party politicians would be delighted to be able to reach 40%, but have no hope of undermining Kingi's armchair, despite good offices in the Islamic community of candidate Gideon Mung'aro, former mayor of Malindi Of the golden years of tourism.
In short, Kilifi County with Odinga, while from a Malindikenya.net survey also reported by the Italian agency ADN Kronos, the Italian community would prefer to be re-elected Uhuru. Who identifies him as a "friend of the Italians", who simply for the continuity that has allowed Italy and Kenya to establish many bilateral relations in the last four years, starting from judicial and fiscal cooperation, to new business opportunities for Italian companies in the African country.
