UHURU/ RUTO’s ICC cases: GITHU tells BENSOUDA she is a DISGRACE to Kenyans and can report to UN


Friday April 26,2013 - Attorney General Prof Githu Muigai has launched scathing attacks at International Criminal Court (ICC) Chief Prosecutor Fatou Bensouda saying she is disgrace to the Kenya Government and its citizens.

In a letter he addressed to the ICC court, Muigai said Bensouda is lying to the court that the Kenyan Government is not cooperating with the court.

Githu also cited recent comments by Bensouda that part of the reason she dropped the case against former Head of Civil Service Francis Muthaura was lack of cooperation from the Kenyan government.

“The Government of Kenya disapproves of any attempt by the Prosecutor of the ICC to excuse evidential gaps or difficulties in her case as being attributable to action or inaction by the Government of Kenya,” the AG said.

He said the Government has complied with all 37 requests by the ICC court apart from two—those that relate to the request that the Government furnish the court with financial information on the three suspects and statements of the interviews of ten police bosses.

Regarding the financial information of President Uhuru Kenyatta, his Deputy William Ruto and radio presenter Joshua Sang who have been indicted by the court, Githu said “Kenya contends that there has to be a court order in place to fulfill this request and the Pre-Trial Chamber found out that such a request lacked justification.

On the police interviews, the AG said there was a court order issued on February 1, 2011 prohibiting judge Kalpana Rawal from "taking or recording any evidence from any Kenyan” pursuant to any ICC court process.

“It cannot be right that a State's internal security is suborned by an outside agency's ill supported allegations of non-cooperation which has the potential to erode national regard for the institutions of Government and their compliance with the rule of law,” he said.

Bensouda has been complaining that the Government of Kenya is not cooperating with the court but furious Muigai told her instead of complaining, she better report Kenya to the United Nations (UN) in accordance with the provisions of the Rome Statutes.

  1. Well done Prof. Githue Muigai. I emphathise with Bensouda because her predecessor relied on fabricated investigation that did not bear any empirical first hand data. Unfortunately, Ocampo is now dribbling balls with FIFA and left the gracous lady with shoddy case based on very shaky evidence. what a gwan!
    ICC should first go for Syria atrocities and return the Kenyan cases to Kenya for local arbitration.

    By the way, why is U.S.A interested with ICC and they are not signatories of the Rome Statute?

    Aluta continua!

  2. bensouda adn ocampo are driven by jealosy.maina kiai is the cause of all this but God hata acha uhuruto.they r covered by the blood of jesus d nothing wil harm them even icc. Maina kiai wil live longer to see how God works once He decide its time for blessing

  3. kudos........who in the past, of the same rank could say the truth "nakedly"......wao!!

  4. Icc is apolitical court and all kenyans have rejected it since it is being used by usa to manipulate africans politics pole sana Bensounda.

  5. By the way, the 2 Kenyan ICC cases can be sorted right here by our local tribal elders and leaders including the Njuri Nceke. The communities and families involved can then begin a new chapter to forgive, reconcile, heal and get restored. There is good will in the new leadership and I am sure this New Government can work very hard to resettle the IDPs. This ICC game is not helping anyone.It needs to end. Kenya is capable of sorting its own issues.We know ourselves better. Our help is not going to come from ICC.God is our help. we need to cooperate with God and get rid of all bitterness, anger, hatred and lies.

  6. He really did it this time. Gave her a piece of his learned mind.

  7. TRY TELLING THAT TO THE RELATIVES OF THOSE KENYANS WHO WERE BRUTALLY KILLED IN POST ELECTION VIOLENCE 2007. IF THEY WERE YOUR RELATIVES, I WONDER IF YOU WOULD EVEN HAVE THE NERVE TO POST SUCH DISGUSTING COMMENTS.

  8. Anonymous 08:30, you are payukaring yet you do not need to know that just like USA, Syria is also NOT a signatory of the Rome Statute either.
    Blame your kenyan boys for rushing to append their signature. Nkt.

  9. Kudos, Bwana A-G. Somebody needs to tell them as it is !

  10. DONT U THINK GITHU AND ANY OTHER MAN COMMENTING ARE TO BE REVISITING THEIR STAND ON THE HUMAN RIGHTS AND THE EMPATHY TO THOSE WHO WERE KILLED OR WERE AFFECTED BY THE MENACE OF THE POST ELECTION VIOLENCE. AM SURE THAT U TALK AND COMMENT HAPPILY AGAINST ANY ATTEMPT OF INDICTING THE HAGUE CALPRITS. BUT GOD IS NOT EARTHMAN. ONE DAY ULL REALISE THAT THERE IS MORE BIGGER AND WISER SUPER NATURAL BEING THAN GITHU, RUTO, UHURU AND ANY COMMENTATOR. ULL BE JUDGED ACCORDING TO HOW U JUDGED OTHERS. ULL BE KILLED BY THE SAME SWORD U USED TO CHOP THE HEAD OF UA NEIGHBOUR. IF U THINK U R MORE SUPERIOR THAN ALLAH THEN WATCH.

  11. Any comments Maina Kiai?

  12. Disgusting of the icc. It seems that we are to experience much if benaoudas nnsense. This cases were based in I'll intentions. No weapon formed against our leaders shall prosper.

  13. Bensouda should leave all about our president.

  14. Mind you hii sio korti kibera twende pole pole mpaka bin suda hatoe kucha zote,ndio mungai afute komba ndani ama inje

  15. We are with ICC Kenya is ready to move on!
    Where is Annan he now fear to visit Kenya after his man was defeated! Tel him to come no harm will b done to him Kenya is at peace!

  16. Prof. Big UP! That is all the oath you took. Proudly Kenyan. I believe however much Bensouda and ICC may think they are right, there is a lot that is questionable. Those cases................... But the whip of God shall spare no atrocity against any innocent Kenyan. Proudly Kenyan
    If she does not report to UN, be the first to report the humiliation against the beautiful kenya.

  17. I love it when we as a nation assert our sovereignity.LET THEM TAKE US TO THE UN. hahaha...

  18. Bensouda is seeking evidence through a back door of which it is not accordance with the field of justice this is bullying kenyan government to incriminate its citizens for unsubstantiated case.Githu informer her of her real role as a prosecutor.

  19. Well Done Prof.Githue Muigai - What iss Bensouda doing about Bashar Hafez al-Assad of Syria. There is overwhelming evidence that he has killed 70,000 people. He is now using poison gas. Why has Bensouda not brought him to ICC court?
    Uhuru Must never go to Europe - He will be arrested and detained without trial.

  20. Anon 08:30. If you were in my class, I would have given you a A+!.

  21. Fatou Bensouda is another puppet for UN. From a small country the Gambia, who is she mess with sovereignty of Kenya. you said it Prof. Githu Muigai. Further more how come the ICC has never arrested any white person? what about the Bosnia case? How comes it concentrates on Africa? Now I see why President Museveni was right. Its time African countries do away with ICC SHIT!

  22. Bensound! You have two choices in this ICC case 1. Have Mr Ocampo return to ICC and finish what he had started. This Ocambo guy had thrown the monkey on your shoulders without a proper data for any consideration ... thus making you look bad ... 2. Discontinue the whole case and have the Kenyan people handle it.

  23. When and where was this "scathing attack launched at bensuda" by Githu.


    OTHERWISE you make it sound as though prof githu muigai said this yesterday, at some UN function

    kamande kioi

  24. Githu muigai go again fight for kenya a 'poor' nation.. How long are this moreno bensouda going to torture us we kenyans?? Tell them to Fuck off and let us be,we have mutunga na smoking wanaja,and even drinking kinyanjui

  25. very well said AG bensouda was part of a political plot to make way for raila but the voice of the people spoke loudly can she just leave us alone,very partisan she went into a case without sufficient evidence tromatising families instead of bringing justice to kenyans

  26. I DONT THINK WE NEED THE ICC ANYMORE. KENYANS HAVE MOVED FORWARD. PERIOD

  27. Oh yes, Kenya is a sovereign state and should shun any external interference at all cost.

  28. Bensouda should also bring to justice Barrack Obama & George Bush for the drone attacks in Afganistan & Pakistan. Both have also killed hundred of thousands of innocent women & children in Palestine. Forget about Rome statute signatories a criminal is a criminal.

  29. GOOD!! this lady has eyes but she cant see, she has ears but cant listen to the voice of REASON! everybody including Ocampo en international media has tried to hammer the truth into her head that kenyas ICC cases were politically fabricated and shes pretending 2 b deaf! so what else does she expect from govt? Shes spending TOO much tyme en energy chasing WIND!! she shd cooperate with Githu Muigai if she wants her CV at the Hague to remain relevant.

  30. its called inheriting doomed legacy from Ocampo!

  31. when she came here fuming to collect own evidence nani alimkataza...then she left kenya bragging that she had gathered enuf proof to jail even more suspects, so whats all the fuss again?? amegonga mawe tena? just a hint Miss Hague..POLITICAL PROBLEMS CALL 4 POLITICAL SOLUTIONS! once that fact sinks into ua head,then come bak to kenya en ask how its done...simple, en will make ua work easier.

  32. The ICC is these days run by lying and attention seeking WEST AFRICANS...Bensouda's spokesperson is also a Gambiam and she is also sorrounded by some Nigerians..Some of those Nigerians have even been sued by Muthaura for lying...These brothers and siters of ours from Africa are being used by the western Nations to persecute their fellow Africans!Everybody knows,even British & American Intelligence that the evidence Bensouda has which she inherited from Ocampo is shoddy and flawed and they have resulted into blaming Kenyan Government for their Failures.!Heko Githu Muigai,tell them off and don't compromise our National security for the sake of Western Nations whims.!

  33. Bensouda you can go jump to Lake Tanganyika!lasi check was the deepest

  34. Thank you AG Prof. Muigai for factually fighting to restore our dignity. The ICC should always be seen to be a court that restores justice In Good Faith. It's clear from the onset that there was No Good Faith from the Prosecutors office (Ocampo) from the List of suspects. After the hue and cry from Africa that all cases were targeting African countries we were appeased by An African being Promoted to head The Prosecutors office. That was meant to indicate to us that we have now nothing to complain about because we'll be treated fairly by our own But obviously that's a lie. These unsubstantiated non factual claims by Bensouda clearly show that she's just an African who has the same zeal and intentions as her predessesor and that is to conduct the case "without good faith". I agree with the above comment that Bensouda inherited a shoddy fabricated case but if we lay men see that she must have had the ability to see the same her continued actions proves her affirmation of the approach taken. Information is accessible freely these days and as such we're more aware of how Geopolitics is being played out and controlled.
    Aluta continua!!!

  35. Poor Bensouda! She comes from a country where there is no rule of law,where dictatorship is the order of the day from a self styled King, and therefore her approach to matters law could be more informed by her background rather than her wish to see justice done! She is struggling to appear relevant in a quicksand situation her predecessor Ocampo left her! With almost all witnesses having recanted their evidence by claiming they were coached by (Maina Kiai and Omar Hassan),i sincerely don't envy her position! It quite precarious!! It is just a matter of time!!!!

  36. What kind of an African person who does not respect other Africans and their choices? Unless of course she is still pushing for a 'foreign Agenda' which we already know she is. Shame on this WOMAN!!!!!!! GIVE US A BREAK!!!!!!!! U have become like an ANNOYING PEST !!!!!!!!!

  37. I do not know whether UHURUTO were involved in the Post election or not. What I know is that the real killers are out there in the streets, are probably well known by families of their victims and nothing and nobody is talking about them. While going after their alleged sponsors is fine how come nobody is talking about the guys who actually committed the crimes on the ground? Lets get real, the identity of the real sponsors of the violence is still an open question but the killers are the people we need to be going after. ICC is just a bullshit court. Maina Kia should have petitioned whoever he imagines can help the victims to track down the real killers.

  38. By choice,Kenya decided to go to Hague,the consequences ;prosecution of those found culpable of atrocities committed during the 2007/2008 PEV!
    Madam Bensouda owes it to the people of Kenya,to produce results.
    Our good prof,the AG should stop being vague & a disgrace to the victims of PEV. Tunakucheck!

  39. congratulations Githu, its time the prosecutor stopped being subjective and personal with the suspects. she is lacking professionalism and instead she displays personal vendetta and anger.

  40. You can make any comments, but do not crucify Bensouda. She is just a lawyer doing her job. She had the presence of mind to withdraw the case against Muthaura. Iam sure if she has no evidence against the remaining suspects, she will have the legal honesty to withdraw. We should not crave for withdrawals just because key suspects are now rulers. We should also urge Bensouda to bring Raila and Kibaki to account, because the truth is that they were the Principals in the mayhem of 2007/2008.

  42. Gross atrocities have been commited by the USA in VIETNAM, IRAQ, AFGHANISTAN etc.

    Has the USA been indicted by ICC's BENSOUDA?

  43. Let it be known that the Kenyan case was taken to the Hague by Kofi Annan, spurred on Mutua Makau and Maina Kiai, on which in itself is an anomaly. It was supposed to punish some people and get them out of the political life as Mutua repeatedly pointed out that it would take more than 10 years for the cases to be judged. The so-called prosecution witnesses are mere technical witnesses. When the good lady tells all and sundry that the witnesses were bribed, why not prosecute the people who bribed. It is a crime and she can be helped by UNDOC!

  44. Seriously.....Are there some fellas who still wait upon Uhuru and Ruto to be jailed someday??? Honestly my heart bleeds for them

  45. Why can't yu apply the Tyranny of numbers theory at the Hague Mr AG?

  46. ICC will only make a strong case when they find out what the motive of the post election violence was;why there were claims of a stolen election and who were the political rivals for the top seat at the time.

  47. BENSOUDA DEAL WITH THEM ACCORDINGLY,KENYA IS A FAILED STATE FULL OF LIES AND HYPOCRISY....JAIL THEM FOR NOT LESS THAN 50 YEARS.

  48. The truth is, coached witnesses withdrew and she's just looking for a scapegoat. When she says witnesses's were killed which ones is she talking about witness 4, 8 or 12 or whatever. And how can they be killed if they were under witness protection. And if they were killed, who is the suspect and why have they not been arrested or any investigation done? And why has she not added charges of witness bribing or killing to the suspects? We know the truth, your office coached witnesses and the truth shall come out. Swallow your pride madam, end the case and save your career because this case will destroy it along with the reputation of the ICC. and that is a guarantee...

  49. Ocampo did a shoddy job and to save your face madam bensuda just drop the case for lack of enough evidence.

  50. The reason I support Prof. is because Bensouda and her cronies do not want to spend their time and money to research. find out things for themselves. they are waiting to be fed by Maina Kiai's who hate their country and are employed by the western world to destroy Kenya.
    Let Bensouda and the Kangaroo ICC do the work they were employed to do and leave Kenyans to continue with their work. Bensouda should resign immediately.

  51. THIS ICC NEEDS TO KNOW THAT THESE ARE NOT THE DAYS WHEN NIGGERS USED TO BE HANGED IN ORDER TO PLEASE AND SATISFY SOME INDIVIDUALS' INTEREST AND CURIOSITY.IT DOES NOT MATTER WHO IS BEING USED TO DO IT, EVEN OTHER NIGGERS.

  52. this madam first take raila huge hes the one who told the people to demstreat, uhuru and ruto they were not fighting for president, so the first person to be in huge is Raila

  53. Githu, you are wasting your time! Unaongea ju ya wakenya gani? Silly you. Do you know how Kenyans suffered and those who lost their lives and relatives in the last elections???? Mjinga wewe! Let Bensuda do her work and mind your own business. Ndio mana mliiba kura mueskape ICC. Shame on you.

  54. Kenyans let us be sober and reflect on the events of the 2007/2008 PEV remember the thousands who lost their homes,property and are now refugees in their own country,the hundreds who lost their lives for the simple reason that they were kenyans presumebly at the wrong geographical zone or of the wrong tribe.
    After reliving these events let us ask ourselves what next,ICC or no ICC has justice been delivered to these innocent poor souls?Whichever part of the political devide u belong i'm sure your answer is as good as mine

  55. U PPLE, DID BY ANY CHANCE THE ROUGH FIGURE(1133) INCLUDE YOUR RELATIVE OR FRIEND? HOWEVER HAPPY A NUMBER OF U SEEM TO BE, SOME OF US WILL NEVER SMILE AGAIN!!!!!!!!!

  56. Mr. Muigai, you again want to be a friend of the court? ICC is not suprime court.... A silly AG Kenya has ever had!

  57. Kondoo hii! Just just apply to be a friend of the court.

  58. This Bensouda woman is very ugly. She looks like a Jaluo.

  59. Money will never buy the truth Bwana Muigai, who killed the 1133?
