A lonely road pictured in the centre of Kisumu afer all business were closed on election dayin Kisumu, western Kenyaon March 4, 2013. Long lines of Kenyans queued from way before dawn to vote today in the first election since the violence-wracked polls five years ago, with a deadly police ambush hours before polling started marring the key ballot. 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 and observers repeatedly warning of the risk of renewed conflict.
