One polling station, Olympic Primary School, remained closed using rocks and carts.

Odinga on Wednesday asked his supporters to stay home and pray for the nation.

He said that the NASA coalition was transforming into a resistance movement that would not take instructions from the government.

He maintained that the elections were shambolic and would push for fresh elections in 90 days.

In Migori, supporters kept vigil to keep away voting materials from getting to the polling stations.
