Kenya launched a voter registration drive Monday for elections in August 2017, in a bid to push numbers to a record 25 million voters.President Uhuru Kenyatta won the March 2013 polls by more than 800,000 votes ahead of his nearest rival, outgoing Prime Minister Raila Odinga.Odinga and civil society groups filed legal challenges alleging the polls were marred by a series of irregularities that skewed the results.The 2013 polls were peaceful apart from isolated incidents, avoiding a repeat of the ethnic killings and widespread violence that followed the 2007 polls, when more than 1,100 people were murdered and several hundred thousand forced to flee their homes.
