JOHANNESBURG – Kenyan police have fired teargas on thousands of opposition supporters demanding election reforms.

On Tuesday, opposition leader, Raila Odinga, announced his withdrawal from this month's presidential election re-run.

Odinga said the vote can't be free and fair because of the country's current circumstances.

President Uhuru Kenyatta said the election will go ahead even if he's the only candidate.

Odinga contested August's election results in the country's Supreme Court.

The court ordered a rerun scheduled for the 26th of October.

The electoral commission is expected to announce the way forward on Wednesday.
