Nakuru - Kuresoi south Member of Parliament, Zakayo Cheruiyot has said that the Jubilee government is not using the same effort and energy used in saving President Kenyatta from ICC to save deputy President and radio journalist Joshua Sang from the Hague based court.
Speaking Sunday at the Kuresoi south AIC church, Cheruiyot said the foreign affairs ministry has relaxed since the dismissal of President Kenyatta's case.
He alleged that foreign affairs cabinet secretary, Aminah Mohammed has stopped making the numerous trips she used to make when the government was fighting to get the President out of the ICC.

"The foreign affairs cabinet secretary should tell us why she is no longer engaging in the shuttle diplomacy like she used to in the case of President Kenyatta. Since the withdrawal of the case, the government has relaxed and it is doing very little to get Ruto and Sang out of ICC," said Cheruiyot.
Cheruiyot called on Ruto to take a personal initiative in getting his case dismissed saying the government will disappoint him.
"My brother Ruto should take a personal initiative just like the President did to kill his case because it seems no one seems to be interested in helping him," he said.
