Kenya’s bid to fight UHURU/ RUTO’s ICC cases at the UN can NEVER succeed - ICC


Friday, the 10th of May 2013 - The International Criminal Court (ICC) has dismissed Kenya’s latest bid to get the cases facing President Uhuru Kenyatta, Deputy President William Ruto and radio journalist Joshua Sang terminated by the United Nations.

According to ICC Outreach Coordinator Maria Kamara, the UN lacks the power to terminate the cases;

“No investigation or prosecution may be commenced or proceeded with under this Statute for a period of 12 months after the Security Council, in a resolution adopted under Chapter VII of the Charter of the United Nations, has requested the court to that effect; that request may be renewed by the council under the same conditions,” said Kamara.

Kamara’s response comes a day after it was revealed that Kenya’s Permanent Representative to the UN Macharia Kamau last week appealed to the UN to terminate the Kenyan cases on pretext that they will destabilize Kenya if they proceed.

Kamau also said that the fact that Uhuru and Ruto were given a strong mandate by the Kenyan people in the March 4th elections means that most Kenyans believe in their innocence.

However, lawyers for both Ruto and Sang have disowned the statements by the UN representative saying they are committed to the Hague process. Ruto also said that the statement by the UN rep does not represent the government’s position on the Hague cases.

ICC Prosecutor Fatou Bensouda, in her own remarks to the UN, has dismissed the statement by the UN rep as “a backdoor attempt to politicise the judicial processes.”

  1. Bloody bure kabisa move by Uhuru. Ati through the UN kesi itupiliwe mbali, let me refresh his mind 1,300 dead, more than a thousand women and children raped, tens of thousand maimed and misplaced to name but a few. Ruto uzuri disassociated himself from that request ya huyu mtu wa pombe na bangi.

  2. Get this killers head on Fatou
    I believe in the ICC process

  3. wewe wacha zako!

  4. IT DOES NOT MATTER WHO FILED THE APPEAL.ICC IS WASTING AND ERODING OUR EFFORTS TO BRING HEALING ON OUR LAND. THE VEHICLE THAT TOOK US TO ICC WAS POLITICAL.THIS ICC DOES NOT KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT US AND ARE RELYING ON LIES AND HATERS WHO ARE SWIFT TO DESTROY THEIR POLITICAL OPPONENTS BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY.MARIA KAMARA SAYS UN ACKS POWER TO TERMINATE THE CASES; DID UN LACK POWER AFTER SUPPORTING THE PAPER WORK OF LIES THAT ARE LABELLING OUR TWO LEADERS AS INTERNATIONAL CRIMINALS.UN AND ICC NEED TO THINK TWICE.THEY ARE NOT FIGHTING FOR JUSTICE BECAUSE JUSTICE IS NOT GOTTEN BY LOOKING FOR SCAPEGOATS AND STRUGGLING TO PIN THEM DOWN.

  5. TO THE EDITOR DAILY POST
    It takes a million people
    To build up a good reputation
    But it takes one stupid fool
    To destroy everything they done
    The world knows your people as
    The most violent in the world
    The world knows your nation as
    The most oppresive in the world
    Take it upon yourself
    To restore your nation's dignity

    Teach the world.tech them right

    It takes a million lives
    To get the respect you deserve
    When people see your kind
    Some of them would run a mile
    The world knows your people as
    A nation of crooks
    Everyone around you should
    Always keep their eyes opened
    The world knows your nation as
    A nation of drug lords
    Everyone blames your people
    For the destruction of the world
    Take it upon yourself
    To restore your nation's dignity

  6. KENYA IS BLESSED.

  15. A case based on fake testimony. Bensouda seems so keen on creating a name for herself by prolonging a case that is going nowhere. Its all about publicity just like Ocampo. Why does she keep going to the media to make statements. She should stop trying to further her career by destroying other people's lives. God never forgets those who bear false testimony against others. Malipo ni hapa hapa.

  16. MARIA KAMARA, UN, BENSOUDA, ICC, MY FELLOW BLOGGERS JUSUS IS LORD. LET US LOOK UP TO HIM. ANONYMOUS 8:34 AND 8:36, MAY GOD SAVE YOU AND ME FROM HUMAN IGNORANCE AND DECEIT. GOD LOVES US ALL.

  17. Omolo whatever, how many people did u kill yourself and how many did you defile cos your demi god was the master mind? tell us cos we wud realy like to know so as to pray for you to heal from your madness, remember God forgives any kind of sin if only you truly repent, the 13,000 you keep on talking about are wiser than u and so they had their reasons when they elected the two Leaders you love to hate with all your negative energy. Repent and you will know the inner peace which u lack, i can also join you in prayer if u so wish, but again, its up to u prodigal son

  18. THIS DOES NOT MAKE ANY SENSE. GOD IS OUR JUDGE AND HE SEES WHAT MEN CANNOT SEE. TIME WILL TELL WHO REALLY KILLED OUR PEOPLE. LETS WAIT AND WATCH.

  19. Omolo Konde,the president should be travelling with you.You know why?Because he only takes bangi and pombe that you offer him.Now that he is away you are minus one student-client.Do you think by now he can compete with you?I doubt!In this field you are ever the leader.

  20. Omolo,go to Hague and say the two raped youas the those you pretend to be speaking for are the same people who voted in the president and his deputy.Until when will you sing this meaningless chorus?Lakini hatukuzuii.wewe endelea until you have no breath.Since haukuweza kupata kitu che bure,this talk might make you rich.

  21. UHURUTO'S LIVES ARE NOT IN THE HANDS OF ICC OR U.N OR BENSOUDA OR KAMARA. THEIR LIVES ARE IN THE HANDS OF GOD ALMIGHTY.GOD IS STRONG AND FAITHFUL.

  22. You and I know who killed who in kisumu,rift valley,kibera,and these right minded characters are sitting to let innocent kenyans take the blame woe unto them coz they what know what g
    tbey had planned a curse they have placed on themselves that's they will never lead this country you don't have even have to use foul language God in heaven sees just repent and might be the tide may turn the other way

  23. Omolo KENDE- hata wewe si mwanaume, ati uko na "KENDE" moja tu na mboro kama pimple! Wanaume wana MAKENDE mawili.Ngui!

  24. Omolo kende, ongeza kuni kabisa kwa shetani. An agent of the devil is always an agent. No qonder there's no sense you can bring in any post av read from you. Weka kuni nyingi za kukuchoma shindwe hii. One thing you should know. As well as ICC is the a King comes from God himself. I dont know why He chose Uhuruto n not you 'good papa' who is a know it all geneeal. U should think twice n stop this hate that has consumed you in that manner. What will you do wen ICC finally terminate this case coz God knows that His two kids are innocent? Wat will happen? Leave Kenya? Think twice n start working hard for your life, idiot

  25. Bensouda is now an African godess and even a prophetess. She,s the Prosecuter and the Judge all rolled up in one and she knows which case will do what. She is acting God but my sista, u cant mock God and get away with it. U make a mockery of our choices afer asking for God's REPENTANCE and VICTORY, u will kneel bfore the same God and plead for mercy, just a matter of time

  26. The truth hurts.
    We will shika them soon.
