The Latest on Kenya following its elections (all times local):

3:15 p.m.

Kenyan opposition leader Raila Odinga has condemned police killings of rioters during protests after the country's disputed election and is urging supporters to skip work Monday.

Odinga on Sunday spoke to a crowd in Kibera, a Nairobi slum where opposition supporters have battled police who fired live ammunition and tear gas in past days. Violence had broken out after Odinga said the Aug. 8 election was rigged; Kenya's election commission, which declared President Uhuru Kenyatta had won, says its voting process was fair.

Odinga says there was "a plot to kill our supporters" and says opposition backers should protest by not going to work on Monday. He is also promising a major announcement on Tuesday.

A Kenyan human rights group says 24 people have been killed since the election.

The pastors asked congregations to help rebuild and leave matters to God even if they feel they have been victims of injustice. Outside the churches, made of little more than wood frames and tin roofs, children…
