There was tight security at the Kenyatta International Conference Centre, the venue of the presidential election vote re-tallying as ordered by the Supreme Court.

A contingent of General Service Unit, regular and administration police kept vigil as the re-tallying was going on.

Only the party agents, electoral commission and judiciary officials were allowed at the hall.

The media was not allowed to access the hall.

On Monday, the Supreme Court ordered the re-tallying of the presidential votes in 22 polling stations across the country.

The judges also ordered a fresh scrutiny of all the Form 34 used by the electoral commission in tallying the presidential votes in all the 33,000 polling centres across the country as well as the Form 36s used by entering presidential constituency results.

All reports and results must be filed with the court by 4 pm Wednesday.
