Bahati MP supports Kenya's removal from Rome Statute
05 September 2013, 10:35
Nakuru - Bahati MP Kimani Ngunjiri has said he will mobilize fellow Jubilee MPs to pass the motion seeking to remove Kenya from the Rome Statute.
He said that Kenya was a democratic country and that no Kenyan citizen should be taken for trial outside the country.
“I will be pushing for Kenya to be removed from the Statue because we are free country that gained independence,” he said.
The Bahati legislator further said that the ICC case was politically instigated by those who were opposing President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy from contesting for presidency.
Speaking on Wednesday afternoon during the issuance of 26 cheques worth KES 12 million to a school in his constituency, Kimani said the ICC should drop the cases since the two communities from Rift Valley involved in chaos in 2007/08 have so far reconciled.
“ICC cases were politically constructed by few people who were opposing Uhuru and Ruto and there is no need for these cases to continue since the affected communities have forgiven each other,” he said.
At the same time the veteran politician said that on 8th Sunday this month he will mobilize all the churches in his constituency to hold a special prayer for Deputy President William Ruto whose trial is set to begin on 10th of September.
The MP also at the same time hit out at Raila Odinga for trying to politicize the issuance of tittle deeds by the president saying he should allow the new government to do its work.
Kimani challenged the former Prime Minister to outline what he did to solve the land dispute in the country during his tenure at the helm of the coalition government.
He urged the CORD leaders to stop politicking since the political season was over and that they should start working for Kenyans.
“Former Prime Minister should allow this country to move on since politics are over because he never helped Kenyans in solving the land problem at Mombasa during his time in government” he said.
