Kikuyu Council of Elders want ICC cases dropped

23 December 2013, 18:00 Joseph Njung’eh

Nyeri - The cases facing President Uhuru Kenyatta, his Deputy William Ruto and radio journalist Joshua Sang at the International Criminal Court (ICC) should be dropped, Kikuyu Council of Elders said Monday.

The council, Nyeri County branch, said the cases have no basis and therefore ICC chief Prosecutor Fatou Bensouda should drop them to avoid further embarrassment.

“The recent sentiments by the prosecutor that she has no sufficient evidence to stand her case against President Kenyatta are a clear indication that the prosecutor has no proper evidence to prosecute even Ruto and radio journalist Joshua Sang,” said the council’s chairman John Karume Mugecha.

“We are therefore calling upon the Prosecutor to drop the cases to avoid further embarrassment,” he added.

Speaking during a press conference in Nyeri town the council stated that Kenyans have faith with the Jubilee government leadership headed by President Kenyatta.

On the health workers strike, Mugecha urged the national and county governments to address the medics’ grievances to avoid such boycott incidences in future.

Mugecha also expressed the councils’ concerns over the squabbles in the county Government of Nyeri.

 “We have noted with great concern that the Nyeri County Government has done very little in terms of development and we urge the governor and his team to pull up their socks in the coming year,” said Mugecha.

He pointed out that the area county government should realize that the constituents are eagerly waiting to see the elected leaders fulfill their pledges.
