    Polls show Raila Odinga and Uhuru Kenyatta in a statistical dead heat in Monday's Kenyan general elections, but Al Jazeera's Mohammed Adow, reporting from a Kenyatta rally in Nairobi's Uhuru park, says supporters of the deputy prime minister hope for a swift first-round victory.

    The fear among backers of the Jubilee coalition's candidate is that other candidates unable to contest results in the case of a runoff will throw their support in favour of Odinga, current prime minister.
