MPs to meet their costs at The Hague

09 September 2013, 13:00 Joseph Njung’eh

Members of parliament who will accompany Deputy President William Ruto to The Hague will not use public funds, Kieni MP James Mathenge has said.

Mathenge clarified that the parliamentarians wishing to give Ruto company during the hearing of his case at the International Criminal Court (ICC) will meet their own expenses.The MPs are expected to individually meet the cost of their air tickets and hotel accommodation for the period they will be at The Hague in Netherlands.

The politician however defended the National Assembly over the decision of introducing a bill seeking to pull Kenya out of the Rome Statute saying that the bill is concurrently aiming to enhance the country’s sovereignty.

“We want to send a message to the world that Kenyans have the requisite and independent institutions which are capable of dealing with their internal matters,” said Mathenge.

He also emphasised that the government has been and will continue cooperating with the ICC until the cases end.

Mathenge made the remarks at his constituency over the weekend while laying a foundation stone for a maternity wing at a local dispensary.
