Kenyan Elections Kenyans go to the polls Friday to elect a new president. A constitutional amendment prevents President Daniel arap Moi from seeking another term, and he's stepping down after 24 years in power. The elections also could unseat the Kenya African National Union, the ruling party since the nation's independence from Britain in 1963. NPR's Jason Beaubien reports.
