Kenya's Supreme Court ordered Monday a recount of votes cast at 22 polling centres, after presidential elections in which a second-round run off was only avoided by the narrowest of margins.

"Retallying is to be done in 22 polling stations," said Supreme Court Judge Smokin Wanjala. The counting is scheduled to begin on Tuesday.

There were around 32,000 polling centres during the March 4 elections, which saw Uhuru Kenyatta win 50.07 percent of the votes.
