Nairobi - Gem MP, Jakoyo Midiwo has said his Gatundu South counterpart Moses Kuria ought to be in jail following his confession that he procured witnesses to fix Deputy President William Ruto at the International Criminal Court (ICC).
Midiwo claimed that Kuria is being used by powerful people in government and that is why police have not arrested him yet he publicly confessed to have committed a criminal offence.
“Ruto and Joshua Sang’ have agonized for seven years and Kuria is freely walking in the streets saying he coached people to take them to ICC, surely, which country is this?” Midiwo paused.
On Jubilee MPs proposal to form a committee to probe the Waki report, Midiwo said he was against the idea because Parliament does not have the capacity to authenticate the report.
“Waki is a Kenyan, why can’t they summon him and probe him on the report?” Midiwo posed.

He claimed that he was not consulted on the formation of the committee where ODM renegades were picked as members.
“I am the ODM leader in Parliament and I was not consulted at all. They went ahead and picked ODM renegades to be members of the proposed committee. What does this tell you? This is a Jubilee committee,” Midiwo said.
He said ODM has been intimidated since Kuria made the fixing revelation, yet the people who fixed Ruto are with him in government.
“Ruto was fixed by the people he is currently working with, we should not be blamed on this issue at all,” Midiwo said.
He said Ruto and Sang’s fate at the ICC now lies with President Uhuru Kenyatta, saying he has the capability of having the case against the two terminated at the ICC, following Kuria’s confession.
“President Kenyatta can now ask the ICC to withdraw the cases because of the false evidence being used against the two. That is his responsibility,” Midiwo said.
