"I'd rather die here than not vote."

Says one kenyan who waited more than 8 hours to vote in the Nairobi slum of Kibera (Washington Post)

Television News sources in Kenya are reporting that Kibaki is trailing Raila significantly (Reuters), while as many as 14 cabinet ministers, all of former President Daniel arap Moi's sons, and Nobel Prize Winner Wangari Maathai have all lost. (The Standard)

In Laikipia East (the constituency where I worked), kenyanpundit reports that John Letai-who is from one of the Maasai communities in my study area- has beaten the incumbent, Mwangi Kiunjuri, the assistant minister for energy- However, my friends on the ground have told me that Kiunjuri is winning...

If you're really interested in the up to the minute results (with occasional "witty" commentary by the Electoral Commission of Kenya Chair Samuel Kivuitu), you can tune in to Kenya Broadcasting Company streaming live. If you find this exciting, I can also recommend watching paint dry and grass grow.
