A key concern is whether Kenya will echo its 2013 election, a mostly peaceful affair despite opposition allegations of vote tampering, or the 2007 election, which led to violence fueled by ethnic divisions that killed more than 1,000 people.However, many voters are expected to vote along ethnic lines.President Kenyatta and challenger Odinga also faced off in the 2013 election. Kenyatta won by a thin margin, with just over 50 percent of the vote; Odinga alleged voting irregularities and took his case to Kenya's highest court, which ruled in Kenyatta's favor by validating the results.
