RAILA ODINGA says he is against UHURU/ RUTO being tried at the ICC …. CORD MPs to accompany them

Wednesday September 4, 2013 - Former Prime Minister, Raila Odinga, has sensationally stated that he will not bar anybody from Coalition for Reforms and Democracy (CORD) from accompanying President Uhuru Kenyatta and his Deputy William Ruto during their trials at The Hague.

Speaking at a Nairobi hotel on Wednesday, Raila, who is also the CORD leader, said everybody in CORD is free to show solidarity to the two Kenyan leaders who are due to attend their trials in a week time.

Raila said he also supports the show of solidarity among Kenyans on the cases facing Uhuru and Ruto saying it is a shame of Kenyan leaders to be tried in a foreign court.
He said Kenya has a reformed Judiciary and as the head of the opposition in Kenya, he will write a letter to the ICC expressing his dissatisfaction with the trial of the two Kenyans leaders.

Already 5 CORD MPs have vowed to accompany Deputy President, William Ruto, to The Hague next week saying this is not a political move but a show of solidarity to the inductees.

President Uhuru Kenyatta, his Deputy William Ruto and radio presenter, Joshua Sang, have been indicted by the ICC in connection with 2007-08 post election violence and their trials commence later this month (for Ruto and Sang) and next month for Uhuru.

    KENYANS LETS KEEP POLITICS AND RAILA OUT OF THIS.

    REMEMBER IT WAS AGWAMBO WHO REALLY ADVOCATED FOR A LOCAL TRIBUNAL TO TRY THE GUYS LOCALY BUT THREE TIMES HE WAS SHUT DOWN BY THE SAME JUBILEE LEADERS WHY BECAUSE OF POLITICS THAT THEY WERE OPPOSING WHAT FROM RAILA NO MATTER HOW GOOD IT WAS.
    HE BEGGED THE JUBILEE LEADERS BUT THEY NEVER WANTED TO LISTEN TO HIM NOW WHY DO WE CALL RAILA'S NAME ADVERSLY?

    FUNNY ENOUGH THEY ARE THE SAME GUYS WHO SAID THAT HAGUE IS VAGUE AND SAID "LETS GO HAGUE" WHY NOW CALLING RAILA RAILA RAILA RAILA????

  2. Roa safe your ink we do not need your intervention in Uhuruto cases you fixed them at ICC and now that you know the cases will be dropped you have started shivering.

  3. This ICC Case will turn around and ruin Agwambo = Siku Za Mwizi ni 40. Raila ako na watoto, wajuku na jamaa. Akae akijua hiyo.

  4. Anon 05:12: U are a stupid tribalist. We need everybody's support on this. You are not the judges at ICC. Even the judges at ICC don't know the outcome because the judgment will not be delivered on the basis of one judge's opinion. Bure kabisa

  5. THE CASE IS NOT GOING TO BE DROPPED, INFACT THEY ARE GOING TO BE HUNGED AND NO SANE KENYAN CANSYMPATHIZE WITH DEM SINCE THEY SAID THAT THEY CAN ONLY GET JUSTICE IN THE HAGUE AND NOT IN KENYA SINCE THE KENYAN COUTS ARE VERY CORRUPTM, SO LET THE TWO CRIMINALS FACE THE MUSIC IN DE HAHUE.LET ruto DISTINGUISH BETWEEN A MOVIE AND REALITY.

  6. RAILA IS A SPOILER. HE WANTS HIS COED HENCEMEN TO GO TO MONITOR AND SPY FOR HIM ON THE PROCEEDINGS OF THE ICC CASE. THE GUY IS A TURN-COAT!!!

  7. Anon 8.06 they said let's go Hague cos they were sure of their innocence little did they know the conspiracy and scheme behind.Ever asked yourself who were the rest of the ocampo 10?Let me just say even Judas Iscariot hugged and kissed Jesus before his arrest and persecution..later Judas was found hanging on a tree..Guilt nayo?Halafu...?!

  8. KWANI WATOTO NA WAJUKU WA RAILA NDIYO WALI PELEKA uhuruAND ruto AT THE HAHUE.uhuru AND ruto NDIYO WALI AMWUA NA WAKA SEMA DONT BE VAGUE, IT IS DA HAGUE PERIOD.

  9. OAR knows these cases are about to be dismissed so now he comes out to yapp and then when they are thrown out, he wants to take credit.

  10. BRO. ARAP NGETICH,
    RUTTO SPECIFICALLY OPTED FOR THE HAGUE COURT 'CAUSE AS YOU VERY WELL REMEMBER THE KENYAN JUDICIARY THOSE DAYS WAS SOOO TRIBELISED AND AM SURE HAD RAO'S NAME BEEN THERE HE AND HIS SUPPORTERS WOULD GO FOR THE HAGUE OPTION !! AND HAD UHURU AND HIS SUPPORTERS KNEW HIS NAME WAS IN THAT SO CALLED WAKI ENVELOPE THEY COULD DO EVERYTHING SO THE CASES ARE HEARD AT HOME.IN THIS SCENARIO RUTTO REMAIN THE REAL VICTIM. YOU MAY WANT TO DENY THIS BUT THAT'S THE WHOLE TRUTH!!!!!!
    KORIMODA

  11. "SAID WILL NOT BAR ANYBODY IN CORD"..DOES THIS SOUND LIKE DICTATORSHIP. THOUGHT CORD MEMBERS ARE GROWN AND CAN DO WHATEVER THEY WANT. WOW

  12. Crocodile tears as usual i know deep inside you're celebrating.

  13. Who is fooling who here? one has to be naive to trust Raila on this.....me thinks he wants to spy on them and endear himself to their supporters...cant work Rao, never will....no one needs your help on this as we know the cases are colapsing like a building with a weak foundation.... here u are too good to be true so take a hike with your masters

  14. The useless guy has realised he is in receiving end and to look good since he had no control of the 5 guys, he has to go with the wave...the usually empty debe optimist

  15. RAO has not had an encounter. Green grass in the snake. RAO just realised he is loosing support even within CORD. His stand is unpopular in Kenya. Remember ICC was the basis that made these gentlemen's political career.

    And what outcome are they expecting ? The Kenyan case could be the undoing of ICC. If ICC is not concerned then why are they responding to MPs demand to withdraw from the charter ? It is the beginning of the end for ICC. They have been caught with fingers in the pie.

    When these guys chanted, don't be vague let's go to the Hague, they never expected an unfair and political court. But that is exactly what they got. Ocampo was not interested to hear about the other conspirators in the 2007/8 violence. And political opponents, self seekers like RAO of course jumped to say they are guilty and should be taken away, hoping to replace them. Do not be deceived, God is never cheated. He will not stand injustice !

  16. A witch doctor from the Central province that coined the phrase ‘Tyranny of numbers’ and whose theory has been discarded was overheard bragging that Uhuru/Ruto would not lose their cases. His confidence is infectious, as some of his supporters have already been celebrating the outcome, which is yet to be known. It seems the soothsayer already knows that the courts will 'cooperate' and rule in his godfather’s favor. The jury is still out on how the soothsayer managed to get the ‘verdict’ to be so sure of the outcome.

  17. RAILA ODINGA YOU WERE AGAINST THE DUO BEING TRIED AT THE HAGUE. NOW, YOU HAVE BEEN OVERTAKEN BY EVENTS. YOU SHOULD NOT COMMENT ON IT. YOUR STAND IS ON RECORD. BUT THE DUO WANTED T9O GO TO HAGUE...MTOTO AKITAKA WEMBE...!

  18. RAO,do you remember saying in one of the campaign forums that Uhuruto are criminals who should be at the hague,Rem?

    You are a true turn coat who should never be trusted by any peace loving Kenyan.You worked hard to fix our leaders thinking it would offer you a safe landing.

    Be true to your stand and let justice take its course.I regret having given you my vote and am happy you lost.

    Its just a matter of time before Bensouda applies to the court to have the two cases withdrawn,reason being the presence of only fake,coached witnesses.

  19. what I still dont understand is why mpigs are travelling to the hague. Is that why a packet of milk is retailing for 60 b0b ndio wapate pesa ya kuharibu?

  20. Anon 8.06, according to the Strategic Intelligence Report of December 2012, Raila conspired with the likes of Kofi Annan to keep Uhuru out of politics. You can google the report, it has been released. Raila is two-faced.


  21. PR exercise yet deep inside he is vindictive

  22. we know pretenders

  23. @@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@
    OH YES, YES, YES, UHURU/RUTO STOLE THE 4TH MARCH ELECTIONS, NOW THEY ARE ALREADY STEALING JUDGEMENT AT THE H A G U E.

  24. How come Kikuyus don't blame Kibaki yet he is the one who ratified the Rome Statute! Kenyans know that RAO,Kibaki, Martha KARUA, LATE KILONZO wanted local tribunal.Even Kitobu Imanyara brought motion for local trib but guess what? Mt Kenya and Rift Valley MPs ganged against.Why don't you blame the MPs who said let's go to Hague...Ukabila mingi.You can never fool us.Check YOU TUBES!IDIOTS

  25. We Kenyans have a very short memory. The two principals tried their level best for a local mechanism established to try the culprits but alas call Don't be Vague we want Hague. Hague has come calling now the sovereignty of state comes on.

  26. I WONDER HOW WE WILL LEAVE IN THIS COUNTY???OUR MPS R SYCOPHANTS,HOW CAN CRIMINALS WHO MADE A THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE TO LOOS THEIR LIVES B SUPPORTED.THE WOUNDS R NOT YET HEALED.PAINFUL FOR THE INNOCENTS KENYANS.EVERYTHING IS HIGH N OUR STUPID MPS N LAYERS STILL GO TO SPEND MUCH IN THEIR OWN PLEASURE TOURING HAGUE.ATI
    SOLIDARITY.,

  27. MA MBWA SINAWEZA KUBWEKA UHURUTO WILL TRIUMPH IN GODS NAME.

  28. @@@@@@@@@
    ANON 01:50 PLEASE BE VERY PATIENT BECAUSE LATER YOU WILL WITNESS WHO THE REAL CRIMINALS ARE.
