Allan Earnshaw, a white Kenyan whose family has been in Kenya since 1896, queues to vote in the Langata constituency of Nairobi on March 4, 2013 during the Kenyan elections. Earnshaw first voted in 1974, and says 'It's the first time we've had a proper Kenya constitution [to vote under], not some thing that was cobbled together by the British.' The tense elections are seen as a crucial test for Kenya, with leaders vowing to avoid a repeat of the bloody 2007-8 post-poll violence in which over 1,100 people were killed, with observers repeatedly warning of the risk of renewed conflict. 'I think everyone was shocked by what happened last time - I was shocked; by and large it's a peaceful country. With a turnout like this we might even get a winner in the first round.' Voters turned out in massive numbers queued from before dawn to register their vote. AFP PHOTO / PHIL MOORE (Photo credit should read PHIL MOORE/AFP/Getty Images)
