Kenyan election nullified over irregularities

Uhuru Kenyatta’s election as Kenyan president last month was nullified Friday by Kenya’s Supreme Court after finding irregularities in the election process. A new vote is to be held within 60 days.

They claimed that as many as seven million votes had been stolen.
