A Kenyan election official has dismissed opposition claims that Raila Odinga is ahead in the presidential election as “ridiculous”, the Reuters news agency reports.

Abdi Yakub Guliye said that the opposition Nasa alliance did not have any “credible data”.

Leading Nasa figure Musalia Mudavadi had earlier said that the party’s own count showed that Raila Odinga should be declared the winner. he also repeated the claim that the electoral commission’s IT systems had been hacked.

But Mr Guliye told the BBC’s Somali service that the electoral commission is “very confident of the computer system”.
