01 September 2015, 13:53 Jackson Okata

Nakuru - A member of parliament wants President Uhuru Kenyatta to seek US president Barack Obama’s help in terminating deputy president William Ruto’s case at the international criminal court (ICC).

Bahati Member of Parliament, Kimani Ngunjiri asked President Kenyatta to seek Obama’s intervention to get Ruto out of ICC.

Speaking Tuesday morning in Nakuru town, Ngunjiri said that the case against Ruto is getting complicated and only the American president can use his influence to get Ruto out of ICC.

“The case against the deputy president at the ICC should be taken with the seriousness it deserves and I want to call on President Kenyatta to use his new found closeness with the American president to get Ruto out of ICC,” said Ngunjiri.

Ngunjiri added that time was ripe for Kenya to do what it has to do to end the case against Ruto.

“The Ruto case should be brought to an end as soon as possible because if this is not done in time it might even split Jubilee into two and this is the time the President should step in and help Ruto,” he added.

The MP called on politicians from rift Valley to come together and find ways of getting their two brothers out of ICC.
