Nairobi- A witness says one person has been shot dead as Kenyan police try to block opposition supporters from holding a memorial for the dozens of people killed in recent months while protesting President Uhuru Kenyatta's re-election.

Kenyatta was being sworn in elsewhere in the capital, Nairobi, on Tuesday.

Human rights groups and others say nearly 100 people have been killed since the August 8 election that was nullified by the Supreme Court following a challenge by opposition leader Raila Odinga, citing fraud. Some of them were killed in protests seeking electoral reforms ahead of the repeat election on October 26.
