Kenya’s repeat presidential poll was free and fair, the election commission said on Monday, despite opposition complaints over the vote that led to it boycotting the process.

“I’m satisfied that we were able to meet these conditions that have enabled the commission to deliver … a free, fair and credible election,” Wafula Chebukati, chairman of the commission, said.
