Jubilee MPs set for Ruto ICC prayers
04 September 2015, 14:16
Nairobi - Jubilee MPs will hold prayers for Deputy President William Ruto, who is trying to get away from the International Criminal Court ICC case.
The MPs will meet in the DP's Rift Valley home-ground where they will seek to give him support as he seeks to clear his name from an ICC case that seems not to go away.
The prayers will be held at Kiptororo grounds in Kuresoi North constituency.
" We have been invited for a prayer meeting by the Majority Leader to be held Sunday 6 September," Nandi Hills MP Alfred Keter said.
A text message seen by News24 sought to urge leaders to meet together at one point and travel in one convoy.
Ruto's case at the ICC is struggling to go away, with the court having allowed the use of recanted evidence to be used in the case, a further dent to the DP.
Ruto has already said that he will fight the move by the trial judges, one which he terms as unfair.
MPs from the Rift Valley have already asked Ruto not to attend the trial if the appeal is shot down.
" He should not attend a trial in which he is being set up," Elgeyo Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen said.
Ruto is c-accused together with journalist Joshua Sang.
