Nairobi, Aug 12, 2017 (AFP)

Eight bodies have been taken to the Nairobi city morgue from three slums which erupted into protests after President Uhuru Kenyatta was declared the victor in a disputed election, a senior police officer said Saturday.
Seven had sustained gunshot wounds, he said noting the eight bodies came from the Mathare, Kibera and Kawangware areas. “They have all been taken to the City mortuary,” he said, on condition of anonymity.
The body of a young girl killed in Mathare earlier had yet to be collected, he said.
According to an AFP tally, the death toll in election-related violence since Friday night stands at 11.
This includes one man shot dead in western Kisumu county and another in the southwestern town of Siaya.
