However, the opposition candidate, Raila Odinga, continued to reject the preliminary results that show the incumbent President, Uhuru Kenyatta, taking the lead.

The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission said Kenyatta maintained his strong lead in the presidential election count with 85 percent of polling stations reporting.

The opposition candidate for president in Kenya claims that early tallies from Tuesday's election are invalid and were hacked to benefit his opponent.

The demonstrations broke out following the announcement of the results of the presidential election held on Tuesday.

"Kenyans are disturbed by this fraud".

"We have caught them".

Two people were shot dead in Nairobi while looting, Nairobi Police Chief Japheth Koome said. "If one wants to know what a fraud is; this is one", he said.

A young man was earlier reported to have been shot dead by a police officer in front of Nduru Girls' Secondary School, which served as the tallying centre for South Mugirango Constituency.

In 2007, the electoral violence claimed the lives of 1,300 people, 600,000 displaced and property worth millions of dollars destroyed.

The area is the birthplace of President Uhuru Kenyatta, who voted at the same place, urging Kenyans to return home and peacefully await the results.

Governemtn Spokesperson Nicholus Dausi said they hope that the elections go well because Malawi has a good relationship with Kenya.

"It is not one's ethnic affiliation, or religious affiliation, or political affiliation".

Odinga posted online what he said were computer logs proving his allegation.

Odinga detailed accusations of a massive hacking attack on the electronic system, saying hackers had gained entry to the system using the identity of top IT official Chris Msando, who was found murdered and tortured late last month. Reason: "The password of the account must be changed".

Odinga's supporters appear not ready for the investigation.

According to the Kenya Today media outlet, the police claimed that the killed protesters were looting during the demonstrations. The western port city on Lake Victoria has been a flashpoint in past elections.

Small protests were put down on Wednesday.

"Voting was consistently well assessed" by European Union observers in both government and opposition strongholds, "with no signs of centralized or localized manipulation", an European Union observer mission said Thursday.
