Supporters of the 'Yes' vote celebrate outside the Kenyatta International Conference Centre, Nairobi, Kenya on Thursday, where Kenyan President Mwai Kibaki and Prime Minister Raila Odinga came to address their supporters. Calling the outcome a "national renewal," Kenya's president celebrated a resounding win Thursday as results showed that close to 70 percent of the country had backed a new constitution, replacing a British colonial-era draft that inflated the powers of the president. Opponents of the new constitution conceded defeat gracefully, paving the way for a peaceful transition to the new draft document.
