IDPs welcome ICC’s decision to withdraw Kenyatta's case

Nakuru - Over 900 Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) at the Nakuru’ Pipeline area have welcomed the termination of the criminal case against President Uhuru Kenyatta at the ICC.
They accused prosecution of carrying out shoddy investigation and implicating innocent Kenyans whom they said were not masterminds of the post election violence.
They also urged the government to hasten subdividing their land at Kisima farm in Njoro which has not been subdivided due to ownership wrangles.
They said most of the IDPs have not been able to relocate to their lands owing to conflict that has delayed resettlement.
Led by Moses Mbugua, they blamed ICC Prosecutor Fatou Bensouda of ignoring them when she visited Kenya over legality of their witnesses.
Mbugua termed the case as a political tool used by western countries to bar President Uhuru Kenyatta and his Deputy William Ruto from ascending to power.
Joseph Kuria, a resident of the Pipeline IDP Camp expressed joy over the case withdrawal, saying that even Deputy President William Ruto and Joshua Sang's cases will collapse soon.
“We have seen those people in opposition who propagated the post election violence walking freely while innocent citizens are humiliated. We are more than happy that the truth has outshone the lies and conspiracy,” Kuria said.
