With a contested election in Kenya reaching a fevered pitch, the candidates are making the final rounds to shore up votes. As James Verini writes for FP, the "alpha male" of Kenyan politics is Prime Minister Raila Odinga, who brings with him the weight of family dynasty and a legacy as a mercurial democrat. Here, photojournalist Mackenzie Knowles-Coursin offers an intimate look at Odinga on the campaign trail, and at home.

While estimates vary, many reported more than 1,000 killed and up to 600,000 people displaced as a result of the violence that followed the contested vote.
