CORD MPs call on Uhuru to come clean over Ruto ICC fixing

07 October 2015, 15:21 Samuel Kisika

Nairobi - A section of the MPs in the Coalition for Reforms and Democracy (CORD) have claimed that President Uhuru Kenyatta masterminded the fixing of his Deputy President, William Ruto at the International Criminal Court (ICC).

The 15 legislators from opposition led by the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party chairman, John Mbadi asked President Kenyatta to come out and prove his innocence in fixing Ruto following the Gatundu South MP, Moses Kuria’s confessions that ICC cases were only political witch-hunt.

Mbadi warned Kuria against alleging that CORD leader, Raila Odinga is responsible for fixing Ruto and hiring false witnesses to testify against the Deputy President at ICC yet the Gatundu South MP was Kenyatta’s employee who was used to procure the witnesses.

“Time has come for President Uhuru Kenyatta to be honest to his deputy. Uhuru cannot be claim to be ignorant of what was being done by his own employees and disciples; Moses Kuria and Nancy Gitau. In Kuria’s own words, they even paid the coached witnesses money,” said Mbadi.

“Was that money given to them by their principal? It is tempting to conclude that all these crimes against Ruto and radio present, Joshua Sang were executed under his directive. If that is not the case, Uhuru himself must come out and clear the air,” he added.

Mbadi maintained that Odinga did not engage in fixing Ruto in relation to the 2007/8 post-election violence because the deputy president was then among Odinga’s five point men in ODM and he was even appointed to represent the party in negotiation talks that led to formation of the coalition government.

“Ruto was our comrade in ODM and how could Odinga fix his own lieutenant at ICC? Ties between Kuria and Kenyatta run deep. They hail from the same neighborhood and worked Uhuru from 2008, the period during which he has confessed to have participated in procuring witnesses to fix Ruto; all the way until he became the Gatundu South MP,” said Mbadi.

He claimed that The National Alliance (TNA) party’s controversial move of giving Kuria a direct ticket for the Gatundu South by-election thereafter Kenyatta prevailing over other candidates to step down for Kuria’s unopposed election meant to reward him.

“In all these favors from Uhuru, it comes out clear that the President felt and acted as if he was heavily indebted to Kuria for some reason. In the controversial 2007 general elections, Kuria was a top campaigner for PNU presidential candidate, Mwai Kibaki while doubling as Uhuru’s chief campaigner in Gatundu South,” said Mbadi.

The ODM chair despite Kuria confessing that he took part in criminal practices of procuring, bribing and coaching false ICC witnesses, he is yet to write a statement with the Director of Public Prosecutions on grounds that he enjoys protection from powerful government officials.

“Kuria’s actions comprise crimes against the administration of justice and against innocent citizens in both the ICC and national statutes in Kenya. The failure to take firm action, investigate and prosecute Kuria, Nancy Gitau, Mutea Iringo among others is an indicator that they acted for and on behalf of a Principal who is powerful and duty-bound to protect them,” said Mbadi.

Kitutu Masaba MP, Timothy Bosire said the Jubilee coalition used the ICC issue to win the 2013 general elections by spreading propaganda in their campaigns that Odinga masterminded the transfer of Kenyan post-election cases to The Hague.

“It is becoming increasingly clear that ICC was a political joke to benefit a certain political wing as a weapon to win the 2013 general elections and it is clear the same Jubilee coalition is the same ICC issue as a strategy to win the 2017 elections,” said Bosire.

Other MPs present at the press conference held at Parliament Buildings were Peter Kaluma (Homa Bay Town), Millie Odhiambo (Mbita), Opiyo Wandayi (Ugunja), Jared Opiyo (Awendo), Oburu Oginga (nominated), Abdikadir Aden (Balambala) among others.
