UHURU/ RUTO’s ICC cases should be terminated by UN- Now Kenya’s ambassador DEMANDS


Tuesday, the 9th of May 2013 - Kenya has stepped up its efforts to get President Uhuru Kenyatta, his deputy William Ruto and radio journalist Joshua Sang off the hook at the International Criminal Court.

The latest attempt is a full-on attempt by Kenya’s Permanent Representative to the UN Macharia Kamau to convince the United Nations Security Council to lean on the ICC in order to get the Kenyan cases terminated.

In a strongly worded statement, Kamau said that Kenya is not interested in a deferral but rather wants to get the cases terminated;

“What this delegation is asking for is not deferral. What this delegation is asking for is the immediate termination of the case at the Hague without much further ado,” read Kamau’s statement.

Kamau said that the ‘false and manufactured’ nature of the charges facing the three Kenyans has come to light as the trial has inched forward;

“The original claims might have been false and or manufactured. It has since come to light that the evidence could be tainted and or procured through inducement and or corrupt measures,” Mr Kamau said in the confidential letter to Mr Menan Kodjo, the President of the UN Security Council.
Kamau also said that the fact that Uhuru and Ruto worn the March 4th elections demonstrates that the pair have the overwhelming backing of Kenyans who believe in their innocence;

“It is a fact that the very suspects who are being prosecuted and suffice to say have received overwhelming support from the citizens of Kenya in the just concluded 4th March 2013 elections,” he said.

“This mandate was received from the Kenyan public in exercise of their inalienable democratic rights and civic duty,” he added.

Kamau warned the Security Council that should the ICC cases proceed then they threaten not just its governance but its future stability;

“Neither can the state be expected to be orderly under such circumstances,” he said.

'The UNSC must therefore play its role and bring this matter to a halt…we ask it to take the much needed political stance that Kenya must be given the time and opportunity to apply the principal of pre- eminence of National Courts,” he aded. 

“The UNSC also has a duty and obligation to assist Kenya overcome this serious politically sensitive and potentially destabilising situation.”

  5. Kudos Macharia Kamau. What do the ICC want from us Kenyans. Didn't they see how we voted Uhuru and Ruto overwhelmingly? God is with us. Let everyone against Kenya know that we matured and CANNOT GO BACK TO 2007/2008. We have proven that from the recent elections even when there was petition, and aftermath.

    Stanley are a saint? May be you are worse than them. Respect your President and Kenya at large.

  6. HUYU MTU NI MJINGA. AWACHE WAHALIFU WAENDE ICC

  7. the case lacks strong evidence foundation as proofed by bensouda herself the she keeps changing things here and there and thus makes me believe that ocampo and bensouda have hidden agenda related to political issues.remember yoweri musevenis speech about the icc...............sisemi kitu

  8. The BENSOUDA(ICC) CASE IS LIKE A TORN DRESS..HOWEVER MUCH YOU TRY TO PUT PATCHES ON IT..IT WILL STILL REMAIN A TORN DRESS..UHURUS LAWYER KAY & LAWYER KHAN TOLD THE OTP THAT THEY ARE TRYING TO BUILD A TOTALLY NEW CASE IN THE MIDDLE OF A CASE..THE ORIGINAL CASE COLLAPSED LONG TIME AGO..BENSOUDA KEEPS PATCHING UP THE NEW CASE WITH MYSTERIOUS BITS OF EVIDENCE WHICH DO NOT ADD UP..IF THE OTP HAD SUCH A SOLID CASE AS THEY CLAIMED,THEY WOULDN'T BE LEFT WITH ONLY 3 SUSPECTS BY NOW..!

  10. what else can he say, he is his brother!

  11. yeah kudos Kenya is a democratic country.lets solve our issues on our own
    icc should leave us alone .we need our people free

  12. The Ponto Polate ruled: I SEE NO EVIL WITH THIS MAN
    ICC COURT SHOULD ALSO RULE: I SEE NO EVIL WITH THIS MAN
    KENYAN PPLE RULED: I SEE NO EVIL WITH THIS MAN AND THEREFORE ELECTED HIM
    THE WHOLE WORLD RULE: I EYE NO EVIL WITH UHURU RELEASE HIM!!!!!!!!!!! OR

  13. I AGREE, THIS CASE IS JUST BASED ON FALSE & DOCTORED EVIDENCE. IT WILL BE UNFAIR TO THE TWO FOR THE COURT TO ALLOW THIS CONTINUE AND IN FACT BENSOUDA SHOULD STOP SEEKING FOR FALSE EVIDENCE AND DOCTORING ISSUES SO AS TO PROVE HERSELF "BETTER". ITS EVIDENT SHE DOESN'T HAVE ANY CREDIBLE EVIDENCE. HOW DID UHURU PLAN THE VIOLENCE "ALONE"??????

  14. We, majority of Kenyans want the cases against the three Kenyans terminated. The cases have a political tag on them and the accusations are false. Kindly do away with the cases for a calm political environment to prevail in Kenya.

  15. These cases are doomed to fail. A shackle of doom really. Set our people free. We are tied of this nonsense.

  16. I AGREE WITH YOU ANONYMOUS 03:15. THIS CASE IS LIKE A TORN DRESS. AND I SAY LET MORE HOLES GET ON IT EVERY PASSING SECOND UNTIL THE TATTERS DISAPPEAR FROM US.

  17. QINO KII...KILLERS....

  18. IF YOU WANT TO SEE HELL IN REALITY, LOOK AT ICC. FEEDING ON LIES AND FALSE ACCUSATIONS TO SMEAR AND DESTROY THE 2 KENYAN LEADERS SO AS TO DRAG OUR NATION OUT OF OUR DESTINY WITH GOD. I REBUKE AND SCATTER THIS CONSPIRACY IN JESUS NAME.YOU ARE DISGUISING AS AGENT OF JUSTICE WHEN YOUR MOTIVE IS TO RUIN KENYA. YOU DON'T STAND FOR TRUTH AT ALL AND WE ARE TIRED OF ICC MESS. DRAGGING US INTO THE PAST WITH FILES FULL OF LIES HINDERS OUR PROGRESS IN FORGIVENESS, RECONCILIATION,HEALING AND RESTORATION WHICH IS BETTER THAN THE ICC WAY OF SOWING DISCORD IN OUR NATION AT THIS DELICATE MOMENT.
