NAIROBI (Reuters) - Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta said on Tuesday that a re-run of August's nullified presidential election would go ahead as planned on Oct. 26 after opposition leader Raila Odinga said he was withdrawing from the "unfair" race.

"We have no problem going back to elections. We are sure we will get more votes than the last time," Kenyatta told a rally in the southern town of Voi, speaking in Kiswahili.
