Kenya opposition leader urges boycott on eve of repeat vote

Supporters of Kenyan opposition leader Raila Odinga hold placards reading “Rest in Peace Uhuru” referring to President Uhuru Kenyatta, and another referring to Odinga with a term of respect in Swahili reading “Father is the same guy”, as they await his arrival at a rally in Uhuru Park in Nairobi, Kenya Wednesday, Oct. 25, 2017. Odinga urged his supporters to boycott a rerun of the country’s disputed presidential election scheduled for Thursday amid rising political tensions and fears of violence, and called on his political coalition to become a “resistance movement”.
