Museveni lashes out at ICC over Uhuru mistreatment

09 October 2014, 19:06 Godfrey Olukya

Kampala - Uganda president Yoweri Museveni has lashed out at the International Criminal Court ICC over their handling of president Uhuru Kenyatta.

As Uganda marked its 52nd independence anniversary Thursday at a colorful ceremony held at Kololo airstrip near Kampala, the president lashed at the ICC and UN for mistreating Uhuru.

He said that all east African community's presidents appealed to ICC to let Uhuru attend the east Africa summit which was supposed to take place the same day he appeared at the Hague court, but the ICC could not listen.

" His excellency Uhuru Kenyatta was supposed to be here yesterday but the big boys summoned him. We told them to wait for the east Africa summit and they said that was rubbish. Too bad for them, our summit went ahead", he said.

He said that it was not the first time for African leaders to be humiliated in their efforts to fight for Uhuru. He added that sometime back African leaders through the African Union appealed to the UN against Uhuru being tried by the ICC since he was a seating president.

" Since the whole of Africa has no representative on the UN security council, they ignored our request," Museveni lamented.

Uhuru has since returned to Kenya where he was welcomed by a street parade in the capital city Nairobi.
