MP asks Obama to accompany Uhuru to The Hague

04 October 2014, 18:56 Joseph Njung'eh

Nyeri - Kieni MP James Mathenge Saturday asked US President Barack Obama to accompany President Uhuru Kenyatta to The Hague next week Wednesday.

Kanini said Obama should partner with other Kenyan leaders to show his solidarity with them when President Kenyatta travels to The Hague based International Criminal Court (ICC) for a status conference of his crimes against humanity case.

“President Obama is a friend to this country and we should expect to see him at The Hague accompanying President Uhuru. Recently, we have seen that he is willing to work with the Kenyan government,” said Kanini.

The MP made the remarks in his constituency at Munyu High School during a prize giving day for best performers.

Kanini said more than 100 MPs would voluntarily travel with the President after the ICC judges summoned him to appear before them in person.

“Both parliamentarians from the opposition and in government are united on this matter because this is an issue affecting the whole country. Am sure ICC will later come to apologize to Kenyans after realizing that the prosecution was wasting court’s time with a case which has no evidence,” he said.

However, Kanini said  that the MPs were catering for their own travel, accommodation and other expenses while at The Hague.
