NAIROBI - 10 October 2017: Kenyan opposition lawmakers said on Tuesday they would boycott parliament over proposed election law amendments ahead of a rerun of a presidential vote on Oct. 26, a contest experts say looks increasingly unlikely to happen.
The poll pitting President Uhuru Kenyatta against opposition leader Raila Odinga must be held by the end of October, according to a Supreme Court ruling. Judges ordered the re-run after nullifying Kenyatta's win in Aug. 8 polls due to procedural irregularities.
