RUTO will cry in the toilet after reading this letter from GITOBU IMANYARA for BONIFACE00:00
.... the ongoing investigations into the death of Jacob Juma?
Is it not true that your client’s notice of intention to sue our client is an ill motivated attempt either to forestall or impede the investigation of Jacob Juma’s claims by a contrived excuse that the matter is in court?
Our client has very real and compelling reasons for fearing that your client may wish to kill him and he reserves his right to disclose these in court should the need arise. The burden of proof in these circumstances will rest squarely upon your client to show up in court and clearly demonstrate that the fear by our client is not well founded.
It is a matter of public notoriety that your client was indicted at the International Criminal Court at The Hague over some grave crimes including murder. It is a grave matter of public record also, that the charges, or at least some of the charges were confirmed and your client was ordered to stand trial but that trial was terminated while your client was on bail for reasons well known to your client and which reasons include documented disappearances and extra judicial killings of witnesses and potential witnesses.
Because the ICC is part of the Kenyan judicial system by virtue of the legislation that domesticated the Rome Statute, our client will, if necessary and in his defence, seek leave of the court to produce those proceedings in the Kenya courts. Our client will then subject your client to robust cross examination which he, your client, was not subjected to by virtue of the termination of the case at The Hague, to show why he harbours these well founded fears that your client may want to silence him by having him killed, as Jacob Juma was.
Your client claims that his reputation has been injured and seeks the Kenyan court to intervene and give him protection and damages. Our client will seek to persuade the court that that he has no reputation worthy of the indulgence of a court of justice either in Kenya or elsewhere. If need be our client will call witnesses to testify that they believe and perceive your client to have been involved in corrupt practices including land grabbing.
Our client welcomes the opportunity to meet yours in court if and when this ill motivated attempt to silence him comes to court, as threatened in your letter.
We have, in the circumstances, instructions to accept service of process on behalf of our client and also to file a counterclaim against your client arising out of an internationally broadcast television interview in which your client defamed and ridiculed our client and sought to portray him as a drunkard who spends the night drinking and wakes up at 11a.m and is an unworthy citizen of the Republic of Kenya.
Be advised accordingly.
For Gitobu Imanyara & Co
