Kenyan girl shot dead as post-election anger boilsBy Humphrey Malalo NAIROBI (Reuters) – Kenya’s main monitoring group backed the official result of this week’s ballot on Saturday as opposition anger at the re-election of President Uhuru Kenyatta erupted in the western city of Kisumu and slums ringing the capital, leading to two deaths. In Nairobi, a young girl was shot dead by police firing “sporadic shots” at protesters in Mathare, a witness said. The run-down neighbourhood is loyal to opposition leader Raila Odinga, whose party has rejected the results of Tuesday’s vote as a “charade”.
