SHAME as RUTO’s government warns South Africa against suing ISRAEL over Genocide in GAZA

Friday, January 12, 2024 - President William Ruto‘s government has once again embarrassed Kenyans after it warned South Africa against suing Israel at the International Court of Justice(ICJ) over the Gaza genocide.

At the end of December 2023, South Africa filed a lawsuit at the ICJ court based in The Hague, accusing Israel of genocide in its war in Gaza, which has seen more than 23,000 Palestinians killed in the process. 

In the suit, South Africa is seeking the court to compel Israel to immediately suspend its military operations in Gaza.

However, Kenya through its Foreign Affairs Principal Secretary Korir Sing'oei, warned South Africa that its genocide case against Israel at the Hague may fail, owing to the complex nature of the issue.

"At a personal level, I appreciate the approach by South Africa and laud its leadership. However, a complex issue of this magnitude, will certainly not find resolution through judicialization.

"Consequently, we (Kenya) will continue to work through the political organs of the United Nations to seek more sustainable remedies," Singóei stated.

Questions had lingered over Kenya's position on South Africa's case against Israel after several countries globally endorsed or condemned the lawsuit. 

Israel and the US dismissed the charges as baseless.
