Kenya election 'credible and complete' says electoral commission

Kenyans are voting in an election that observers describe as the most important in the country's history.

Long lines of voters formed hours before polling stations opened.

Some technical difficulties were reported with newly instituted biometric voting kits - designed to counter claims of vote-rigging and long delays in announcing poll results that were partly blamed for the violence last time.

However, Lilian Mahiri-Zaja, vice-chair of the Kenyan Electoral Commission, told the BBC's Sophie Ikenye that she is confident the elections will be credible.
