Kuria allowed to testify for Ruto, Sang at ICC
13 October 2015, 08:31
Nairobi – It is now official that Gatundu South MP, Moses Kuria will be a witness for both the Deputy President William Ruto and radio Presenter, Joshua Sang at the International Criminal Court (ICC).
The decision was reached after an intensive three-hour meeting at Parliament Buildings between Kuria, his lawyer Danson Mungatana and Sang’s ICC lawyer, Katwa Kigen as well as the Court’s defense lawyer, Logan Hambrick.
Mungata said the Court’s defense office had written numerous demands he declined to mention to the media due to their confidentiality and sensitivity in the ICC cases for Kuria to clarify before being allowed to witness.
“We have agreed that Kuria will be a witness for the Deputy President and Sang at the ICC. The defense office came up with a number of questions that needed to be answered and we didn’t exhaust all of them,” said Mungatana.

“The pending questions will be answered in a meeting with the office of the Defense this October to late November as the ICC Prosecutions team come on October 14,” he added.
Kuria, who also addressed the media, maintained that his mind and conscience remain clear in testifying at ICC to ensure Ruto and Sang are freed.
“My preoccupation now is that the Deputy President and Sanga are innocent. I want to thank and congratulate the former Prime Minister Raila Odinga for also saying he is ready to go to ICC and testify,” said Kuria.
However, he challenged Odinga to put a request in writing with the ICC Defense and the Prosecutions office rather than expressing his interest to testify at the Court in rallies and public functions.
Kuria also asked NARC Kenya Party Leader, Martha Karua and anyone information on the cases and willing to witness at ICC to come out without delay.
