Kenyans came out in their numbers to cast their vote which will determine who becomes their future leader. However, experts say it will be the most contested election in the history of the country.

Eight candidates are contesting for the 2018 elections amongst which are incumbent President Uhuru Kenyatta and the NASA coalition leader Raila Odinga.

The president had earlier vowed to beat his opponent promising to clinch victory in the first round of the vote.

On the other hand, Odinga has insisted that the only way he will lose the election is if the vote has been tampered with.

Political analysts and opinion polls have predicted that the number of voters for both candidates may be close and may lead to violence afterwards.

The election commission has assured Kenyans that the system will work towards achieving a free, fair and transparent election.
