Central MP tells Uhuru to obey ICC orders

22 September 2014, 12:10 Joseph Njung'eh

Nyeri - Kieni Member of Parliament, Kanini Kega has urged President Uhuru Kenyatta to obey ICC orders that require him to be at the court on October 8.

Kega said Uhuru should heed to the International Criminal Court (ICC) directive because it is a trap laid down by the court’s Prosecution.

Speaking at Warazo Jet High School, Kega said the Prosecution would prefer the Head of State to defy the orders so that a warrant of arrest can be issued.

“We are aware of the traps laid down by the Prosecution because they do not have any evidence against President Uhuru’s case. Bensouda is seeking ways of making Uhuru’s life more difficult. She is looking for avenues in which a warrant of arrest can be issued by the court but we are sharp,” he said.

He became the first politician within Jubilee coalition and in Mount Kenya region to ask the President to obey the court.

Kega said he and other MPs will escort the President to the court on the said date to showcase their solidarity as a nation and elected members.

He exuded confidence that the President will leave the courtroom clean, since the Bensouda-led prosecution team has admitted that there is no adequate evidence to prosecute Uhuru.

“Am asking the President to obey the orders because he will soon or later be acquitted,” said Kega.

He further urged the ICC to dismiss the case saying, "It is four years down the line and prosecution has not availed evidence to commence trial."

In regard to referendum clamour, Kega said campaigns for referendum will halt development as he accused the opposition coalition, CORD, of seeking political relevance through plebiscite.
