Kenya: election rerun exposes chasms

Another exercise in democracy fails. Tomi Oladipo in Nairobi on why Kenya's election exposed deep fissures in society.

When Kenya's Supreme Court annulled the result of the August presidential election last month, many hailed it as a victory for democracy. But this week's re-run has once again exposed the rifts in Kenyan society. So what did this whole exercise achieve? Our correspondent, Tomi Oladipo, in Nairobi. Also in this programme/podcast: the elevation of China's President Xi, Brexit fears stalk universities and who is Thailand's new king?
