Nyeri - Tetu MP, Ndung’u Gethenji, has maintained that Kenyans will not allow President Uhuru Kenyatta to go The Hague even after UN Security Council rejected Africa Union’s deferral request.
Speaking to journalists in Nyeri town on Monday, Gethenji said Kenyans should take the rejection as an opportunity to defend the sovereignty of this country.
The MP, who is also the defense parliamentary committee chairman, said that Kenyans have a golden opportunity to defend their sovereignty by prevent Uhuru from going to The Hague come February next year.
“Even if Uhuru wants to go to The Hague, he has no permission from Kenyans and we shall stop him. Kenyans do not need the permission of the UN security council to defend its hard earned sovereignty which we won 50 years ago,” he said.
“We shall not allow any serving leader to attend the ICC cases,” he said.
On Friday, the UN Security Council rejected the Kenya’s and Africa Union’s request to have the cases against the President and his Deputy at the ICC deferred for a year.
