Kenneth opposed to Kenya's withdrawal from Rome Statute

04 September 2013, 09:45 Dennis Omido

Nairobi - Former presidential aspirant Peter Kenneth, has opposed Jubilee MPs move seeking to pull Kenya out of the Rome Statute.

According to Kenneth, the move will not serve any meaningful purpose because it will not have any impact on the cases against President Uhuru Kenyatta, his deputy William Ruto and former radio presenter Joshua Sang at The Hague.

“I find their actions short sighted because I believe that the fear of the ICC helped in maintaining peace in the period after 2013 elections. It served as a deterrent to those who would have wanted to create chaos,” said Kenneth in a statement on his facebook page.

He said according to a common principle of law, the three are still innocent until proven guilty and their rights must be upheld as their trial at the ICC continues.

He however cautioned the ICC against politicising the process if it wants to remain a respectable legal institution.

“It is the responsibility of all the parties involved to exercise restraint and conduct themselves with decorum as the legal process runs its course,” Kenneth said.

He said that he voted for a local tribunal in the last parliament, believing that it was the best way to sort out the issues that arose in 2007/2008, but others opted for the ICC.

Kenneth noted that Kenyans should unite to avoid the recurrence of what was witnessed in 2007/8 and that judicial systems must remain the ever present deterrent to any form of violation of rights.
