Following the annulment of Kenyan presidential election, the electoral commission in Kenya has declared that a fresh presidential election will hold on October 17.
The Chairman of the electoral commission, Wafula Chebukati, disclosed this in a statement on Monday.
It will be recalled that the supreme court had annulled the result of the August 8 poll, ordering that a fresh election be held within 60 days.
