Kenyans are anxiously awaiting a Supreme Court verdict expected on Saturday that will go a long way to determining who will be their president. Earlier this month, the son of Kenya's first president Uhuru Kenyatta was declared the winner by a razor-thin margin. But his opponent, Prime Minister Raila Odinga charged the election commission bungled the vote. With the court ruling on the validity of the vote just hours away, Larry Madowo of Kenya's NTV says the entire nation is "on stand by."
