Kikuyu elders kicked out of Uhuru ICC case

07 November 2014, 13:56 William Korir

Nairobi - Kikuyu elders have been told by the International Criminal Court ICC that their evidence will not be required in the case where president Uhuru Kenyatta is accused of crimes against humanity.

The elders had applied to offer evidence in the case against Uhuru, saying they felt that they needed their voices heard in the matter.

But their application was deemed unnecessary to the case as the trial judges said that it was of no effect to the case that their evidence be heard.

" In the view of the Chamber, the Applicant has not established it would provide any further relevant information beyond that which may be raised and submitted by the parties and participants themselves at any stage of the proceedings," the judges said Friday in a statement.

The elders had argued that they have evidence de-linking Uhuru from an apparent lead role in Post Election violence in Naivasha in 2008.

He is accused of leading groups to revenge attacks on members of the Kikuyu community during that time.

The elders claimed last month when making the application, that the case against Uhuru was a threat to national healing and cohesion as it opened up old wounds.

The president's case is awaiting determination on its suitability before the court, with Uhuru calling for its disbandment, while the prosecutor Fatou Bensouda wants it postponed.
