Kenya election: Uhuru Kenyatta 'wins vote count'

Kenya's Deputy Prime Minister Uhuru Kenyatta appears to have won the presidential election by the tightest of margins, provisional results indicate.

After all the votes were counted he had polled 50.03% of the vote, 4,109 votes over the threshold required for outright victory.

But the official result will not come until 11:00 on Saturday (08:00 GMT).
