Bensouda ICC disclosure strengthens Ruto stand

31 May 2015, 11:36 William Korir

Nairobi - The disclosure by ICC Prosecutor Fatou Bensouda that she may not have enough evidence to prosecute Deputy President William Ruto will only strengthen the Jubilee coalition.

Bensouda's disclosure comes after months of complaint by Ruto's team, which has openly argued that the process initiated by the ICC needs to be closed due to the lack of incriminating evidence.

Political analysts feel that if Ruto is eventually disparaged from the ICC list, it will only serve to strengthen the Jubilee coalition and its resolve.

" It is no secret that Ruto surviving the ICC cull will only ensure that the Jubilee coalition becomes stronger as a result," he says.

" Jubilee has fought the notion that the top two ( Uhuru Kenyatta and William Ruto) are clean of the ICC charges and now with Uhuru out of court and Ruto likely to leave too, it will only make their belief bigger and stronger.

" Their supporters will find even more reason to support them, having in 2013 been sympathy votes, now they will pick up positive votes for their second crack at the top spot," he adds.

Isiah Ong'eno, political analyst

" Ruto surviving ICC will not be good news to especially the CORD coalition," he feels.

" In 2013, the argument was that Ruto and Uhuru are invalid and should not contest the top seat. They still won and very convincingly if you ask me".

" Now they will state that they are here to do a job and must be supported a second term when free. If released (Ruto), it will be a massive statement for Ruto and Uhuru and I think will guarantee them a second term," he states.
