Kenya's Raila Odinga withdraws from election re-run

Kenya's Supreme Court last month annulled the August presidential poll, won by incumbent President Uhuru Kenyatta, due to widespread irregularities in the counting process.

Al Jazeera's Mohammed Adow and Al Jazeera's Catherine Soi, reporting from Nairobi, discuss the significance of Odinga's move.
