Presidential elections in Kenya are held regularly from this morning to 6 p. m.
These are the votes repeated by the Supreme Court's judgment of 1 September, which annulled the outcome of the previous elections of 8 August, which had seen Uhuru Kenyatta outperform the rival Raila Odinga in his preferences.
It was an eve full of vicissitudes, especially linked to the appeals of lawyers and judgements of the judiciary.
The Electoral Commission, in this heated climate, which was not without incidents following the Opposition demonstrations against the IEBC, has acted in such a way that credible elections could be held in such a short space of time.
Director Wafula Chebukati also accepted some of the Opposition's requests, changing the members of the Board's board of directors.
For its part, the government has presented a bill to change some points of the electoral law, especially on the possibility of annulment by the Supreme Court, but in the end Uhuru Kenyatta has not signed it.
Despite these efforts, Odinga and her allies did not want to participate in the elections.
The renunciation of Odinga and her deputy Kalonzo Musyoka has not been ratified, but has only taken place by voice.
In yesterday's last meeting, the opposition leader called on his electorate not to go to the polling stations, to behave peacefully and if possible to stay at home.
However, it is feared that in the strongholds of NASA, Lake Victoria and adjacent areas, the population is trying to block seats, forcing even the few Kenyatta voters not to vote. In this way, if even one seat has no valid ballot papers, the elections will be invalidated again according to the Constitution.
In this case, the chambers will be dissolved and new elections, this time total, will be held within 90 days of the sentence.
If, on the other hand, we are able to vote in each constituency, the President will be elected, which is likely to be Uhuru Kenyatta.
Odinga has already announced that if this possibility were to come true, the NASA coalition would automatically turn into a resistance movement and that there would be demonstrations.
On the other hand, Vice-President William Ruto said that both today and afterwards, disruptive actions will not be tolerated in the electoral process and the establishment of a new government.
Kenya's near future and its recovery after a period of great uncertainty that is undermining the economy and development of one of the world's most growing nations, are still to be written.
Let us hope together with the word Â˜peace".
