Kenya's election commission says President Uhuru Kenyatta has won last week's re-run election, which was boycotted by the main opposition group.

Wafula Chebukati, the election commission chief, said on Monday that Kenyatta got 7.5 million votes, or 98% of the votes that were cast.

The announcement that Kenyatta was the winner by a huge margin was expected because he faced no significant challenge after opposition leader Raila Odinga refused to participate, saying the election was a sham.

Kenyatta was also declared the winner of a presidential vote in August, but that election was later nullified by the Supreme Court.
