Nairobi - Kenya's election commission says President Uhuru Kenyatta holds a strong lead over challenger Raila Odinga with all but 4% of polling stations counted.
The commission's data shows Kenyatta with more than 54% of the vote and Odinga with more than 44%.
Officials are waiting to announce the winner until they check documents confirming the results from around the country in an effort to address opposition allegations of vote tampering.
It is unclear how long that process will take. Election officials by law have up to a week from election day to announce the results.
