A police official and a witness say two people have been shot dead in Kenya's capital during protests over provisional election results showing President Uhuru Kenyatta leading opposition leader Raila Odinga.

Instead, the election board was displaying a running tally on its website that showed President Uhuru Kenyatta leading with 55 percent of the vote to Odinga's 44 percent after almost three-quarters of polling stations had reported results.

"We therefore call on the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) to continue within the constitutionally provided time frame, the tallying with full integrity and transparency so that all Kenyans can trust the announced results", they said. There were eight candidates in all, but apart from Mr Kenyatta and Mr Odinga, none polled more than 0.3 per cent of the vote.

The disputed general election in 2007 was marred by violence in which at least 1,100 Kenyans died and 600,000 were displaced. Audit finds OPM systems still at risk MORE (Del.), both members of the Senate Foreign Relations committee, said they were "appalled by the horrifying death" of Msando, but they urged "all parties to respect the will of the Kenyan people".

Odinga, a former prime minister, blamed Kenyatta's Jubilee Party for the alleged hacking. In Nairobi's largest slum Kibera, an opposition stronghold, angry shouts rang out due to a 15 minute delay, but calm swiftly returned as polling stations opened.

Mr Orengo said what the IEBC was doing is a replica of 2007 and 2013, where the electoral body transmitted results without a basis for verification.

Marietje Schaake said that the European Union mission's final report would evaluate the conduct of the tallying process, which opposition leader Raila Odinga said had been compromised by hackers.

Officials from Kenya's election commission have dismissed claims of irregularities - and insist the vote was free and fair.

"We have our results and they don't match what IEBC is streaming on their portal", he said.

Kenya's citizens will elect the country's president on Tuesday, and current leader Uhuru Kenyatta has called for unity and calm amid expectations of communal violence.

The allegations of fraud and corruption within the voting process has stirred protests, some violent, throughout the country as protesters and police clash.
