Nairobi - Elgeyo Markwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen has said Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria’s confession of having procured witnesses in Deputy President William Ruto’s case at the International Criminal Court (ICC) will not trigger a repeat of what happened in Rift Valley during 2007/8 post election violence.
The legislator said Kuria came out to help end Ruto’s tribulations at the ICC, since his case was concocted.
“We will never go back to what happened in Rift Valley during the 2007/8 post election violence. Even with Moses Kuria’s revelations, we will never use this trial to start ethnic clashes,” Murkomen said.
According to him, Kuria’s confession was meant to end the case against the DP and not open healing wounds.
“We have moved forward as a nation and we are not rolling back. The truth of the matter is the case was concocted, with witnesses procured but we have to move forward as a country," he continued.
“Two people are suffering for the sins they did not commit yet everyone knows that the Ruto and Joshua Sang were fixed,” Murkomen added.
He said the case should now be reviewed and terminated following the revelations and give Kenyans time to forge ahead as one people.
