Blow to RUTO as ICC judges extend his Hague sittings ….. Kenya may miss its Deputy President for LONG

Friday August 30,2013 - The International Criminal Court(ICC) judges have ordered  that the case  against Deputy President William Ruto be heard on a daily basis from September  10 to October 4 and then from October  14 until November 1.

The DP wanted a system whereby trials are conducted for two weeks on and two weeks off to help him discharge his responsibilities as Deputy President.

Ruto and radio journalist Joshua Sang are charged with crimes against humanity.

Making its decision, the trial chamber stressed the importance of advancing as much as possible in the case of Ruto and Sang before other cases affect the schedule.

They noted that there may be need to modify the sitting schedule in the present case once the trial in the Kenyatta case commences.

President Uhuru Kenyatta’s trial is scheduled to commence on November 12.

  1. Don't worry DP. We knew you had the cases when we elected you.

  2. We can now see the motive of the case.if really the value kenyans he could have been given not daily hearings.

  3. yes, indeed. And we knew very well choises have conceiquencies!

  4. yes, indeed. And we knew very well choises have conceiquencies!

  5. yes, indeed. And we knew very well choises have conceiquencies!

  6. kenyans are not on trial ,its ruto...let him bear personal responsibility

  7. KAFUNGWW UKO!!!NKT

  8. i thought they had agreed on a three week break on n off. kwani hata hao ni vigeugeu za netherland kwa hivyo sio kenya tu wako.

  9. Kikuyu's choices have consequences for KIAMBA CHURCH burning of post election violence.

    STOP PRETENDING AS IF NOBODY DIED!

    IDIOTS ROT IN JAIL.

  10. GOOD WORK ICC, AND MAKE SURE ITS EITHER 10 TO 20 YEARS KIZIMBANI, LET THEM KNOW BURNING PPLE IN CHURCH IS NOT A JOCK.

  11. was the DP elected?

  12. Anonymous 03:31 I stand to be corrected, i did not see Ruto's name on the ballot. did u cast a ballot paper in respect of the would be the DP?????????

  13. I hope those touting Ruto know who will eventually be at the Hague.

  14. Is there provision in the Rome statute to arrest and charge the false witnesses exposed? Will the Rome statute compensate Ruto for lost time and money because we are 100% sure the case is going to flop. We are victims in Kenya and will not allow false witnesses to be used at our expense. ICC left us here in Kenya and took fellows coached by human right groups.

  15. Even if they drag for 5 years, come 2017, i will vote for them again. I cannot allow my sovereign right to vote for whomever i want to be abused.

  16. kelenjins & kikuyu's stop ng'eng'e zenu this is now beyond your reasoning,rigging of votes and land grabbing it's at boiling point, instead you should go on you knees and prayer but justice must be served ..............

  17. LET RUTO AND UHURU ROT IN JAIL AND IF POSSIBLE WE REQUIRE THAT THEY DIE AND NEVER COME BACK TO OUR BELOVED COUNTRY CALLED KENYA.

  18. @05:13 Come 2017 we will vote them all over again and with PLEASURE. Uhuru will complete his term and then Bill will be our Prezo 2022.

  19. @ 05:25 which is your beloved country? i bet u might be south sudanese or country-less but Kenyan? naaaaah, we dont have such shameless idiots

  20. while he is there some mpig will move a motion to impeach him.thats why choices have consequencies

  21. Human beings play mind games but God is the final judge. All those writting matope about Uhuru/Ruto will die of shame. Just like Joshua i will trust in the God of Uhuru/Ruto cos so far i have seen what He has done for them

  22. anno.05.l3 May I remind you that what ever way you look at it or pray at it, RAO will never rule Kenya period.

  23. LET THEM KNOW BURNING PEOPLE IN CHURCH IS A GRAVE SIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THE MOVIE STARTS

  24. AND ON THE OTHER HAND,I REMIND YOU THAT WHAT EVER WAY KIKUYUS AND KALES LOOK AT IT, OR PRAY AT IT ,UHURU AND RUTO WILL ROT IN JAIL AND MOST PROBABLY ,THEY WILL DIE THERE, COZ THEY ARE TARNISHING THE GOOD REPUTATION OF OUR BELOVED COUNTRY.

  25. Anon 6:51 Attest to what you know. Did Uhuru/Ruto burn the people in church??? Aren't the people responsible for burning churches in the rift valley and Kibera, maiming, murdering, looting, dispossessing people of their homes and spreading hateful messages still walking freely in Kenya??? May God redeem the president and his deputy at the ICC. I pray;
    7 “In the greatness of your majesty
    you threw down those who opposed you.
    You unleashed your burning anger;
    it consumed them like stubble.
    8 By the blast of your nostrils
    the waters piled up.
    The surging waters stood up like a wall;
    the deep waters congealed in the heart of the sea.
    9 The enemy boasted,
    ‘I will pursue, I will overtake them.
    I will divide the spoils;
    I will gorge myself on them.
    I will draw my sword
    and my hand will destroy them.’
    10 But you blew with your breath,
    and the sea covered them.
    They sank like lead
    in the mighty waters.
    11 Who among the gods
    is like you, Lord?
    Who is like you—
    majestic in holiness,
    awesome in glory,
    working wonders?

  26. The case has taken more than 5 years to start. What is the hurry? Why do we need a speedy trial now. Where is the jury that should decide how the case is conducted. Or are we relying on judges that can be swayed either way. Where is the jury selection? Where is the jury that will decide the case? Or are we to rely on a few individuals to decide a case that indirectly affects a whole country? Lets hope every part of the case is translated into Kiswahili for all to hear and understand. It is one of the human rights. And these are supposed to be crimes against humanity. The victims should be able to understand the whole case as it is conducted.

  27. Noted kikuyu god

  28. Ruto himself said it would take 99 yrs for the case to take-off,time has come,malipo ni hapa hapa duniani.
    Wezi wa kura vile vile,carry ur own cross,we wont miss him.
    Fact,guys died,kwani wao sio binadamu.

  29. Whatever the period our DP will be out, rest assured that both him & our excellency the president will lead this country very well without a hitch and anyone hoping for otherwise is day dreaming. We love our president and his deputy and have total confidence that at the end of all these storms, they will both come out victorious to rule this country for the next 20 years.

    These youthful leaders are full of ideas and energy to turn around our economy robustly to the betterment of everyone. Let's all support them cause they indeed God chosen ones.

  30. LET ME ASSURE YOU ;
    THE HEADINGS AFTER HEARING WILL READ :
    BLOW TO FALSE WITNESSES AFTER ICC SET FREE KENYAN LEADERS !!!!!


    KORIMODA

  31. YOU PEOPLE SEEMS TO DOUBT THE LORDS ALMIGHTY POWERS. I SAID, THERE WILL BE NO CASE FOR UHURUTO. ICC WILL JUST THROUGHOUT THIS CASE SINCE THEY ARE NOT SURE WHO TO NAIL FOR THE MESS.SOON ALL THOSE WHO ARE HAPPY WILL BE SUPRISED TO SEE THE WHOLE TRUTH BEING UNVEILED.MASTERS BEHIND THE ICC CASE WILL BE NAMED AND THEIR ACCOMPLISH.

  32. Annonimous 07;34
    My friend or whatever you are, let me tell you coz it seems that you know much about THE HOLY BIBLE ,but i entirely disagree with you when you tend to involve OUR MAKER ,GOD THE FATHER ON THE SELF INFLICTED ,I MEAN HOW CAN YOU APPEAL TO GOD TO HAVE MERCY ON THE GREATEST MURDERERS IN KENYA ,AND HERE I POSE A QUESTION ;IT MEANS TO ME THAT YOU ARE SINCERELY LUCKING ANY ONE WHO HAS A GENUINE PROBLEMS THAT WHEN YOU PRAY TO GO9D TO COME FOR THIER RESCUE, GOD WOULD HEAR ,BUT LET ME TELL YOU THAT OUR FATHER WHO ART IN HEAVEN DOES NOT HEAR THE CRIES OF PEOPLE WHO HAVE INFLICTED THEMSELVAS INTENTIONALLY LIKE uhuruAND ruto.THE INNOCENT BLOOD OF THE SLAIN KENYANS DURING THE PEV, WILL NEVER SET THEM FREEEEEEEE FOREVER AND KENYANS ARE EAGERLYPRAING TO GOD TO REVANGE AND SPIL THEIR BLOOD AT THE HAGUE OOOOOOOOOOH GOD HEAR THE NEXT OF KIN S OF THE SLAINED KENYANS AND PLEASE GOD ,HEAR US AND ANSWER OUR PRAYERS SOONEST,THANKS IN ADVANCE AS I SINCERELLY BELIEVE THAT YOU WILL TAKE THE TOW SOULS OF uhuru AND ruto AMEN.

  33. AND THESE KIKUYU PRETENDER PREACHERS ARE MORE WORSE THAN THE IBLISS HIMSELF,WHY DOES SOMEONE EQUATE MURDERERS TO THE ANCIENT FAITHFUL LEARES OF GOD OUR MAKER,IS THAT NOT TANTAMOUNT TO TEMPTING OUR MAKER? THER ARE VERY MANY PEOPLE WITH GENUINE PROBLEMS THAT IF YOU PRAY TO GOD TO HELP THEM OUT OF THER RESPECTIVE PROBLEMS,I TRUST AND BELIEVE THAT GOD CVAN HEAR YOUR CRIES AND HELP THE PEOPLE OUT OF THEIR PROBEMS ,BUT TRYING TO GOD TO HELP THE TWO KENYAN MURDERER IS LIKE MOCKING GOD AND HE WILL NEVER COME TO THEIR RESCUE PERIOD.
