Uhuru Kenyatta wins Kenyan Presidential elections with 50.03%

Kenya's election commission posted complete results early today showing that Deputy Prime Minister Uhuru Kenyatta prevailed in the country's presidential elections by the slimmest of margins, winning 50.03% of the vote.
That result is likely to bring controversy in Kenya and an almost certain legal challenge from Prime Minister Raila Odinga. Kenyatta needed to break the 50% barrier to avoid a run-off with Odinga, but he did so by only 4 099 votes out of more than 12.3 million cast.
