My ICC case will also come to an end, says Ruto

28 August 2015, 13:27 Samuel Kisika

Nairobi – The Deputy President William Ruto is optimistic that his ICC case at The Hague will also come to an end soon just like President Uhuru Kenyatta’s case was terminated for lack of enough evidence.

Ruto who spoke in a local radio talk show maintained that he never masterminded the 2007/8 post-election violence caused by disputed Presidential elections that claimed over 1000 lives and tens of thousands displaced.

Although Ruto restrained himself from commenting on the ongoing ICC case, he pointed out that charges against him were planned by some individuals loyal to Western countries with the intention of defining political leadership of Kenya.

“I don’t want to talk much on a case being handled by my competent lawyers. However, the ICC case will soon come to an end. Charges of crime against humanity were only imposed on me and the President Uhuru Kenyatta. I neither slaughtered a dog nor drew blood from anywhere for taking an oath nor gave guns to our youths to fight,” said Ruto.

“It was only a plan by puppets of the Western countries who did not want President Kenyatta and me to lead this country but our people decided to elect us,” he added.

The Deputy President assured that Jubilee government is committed to fulfil its manifesto particularly by increasing power connectivity at cheaper cost to millions of households for lighting, schools for better learning and business enterprises to attract more investors for job creation to many jobless youths.

“We have almost fulfilled our manifesto. Jubilee government has invested a lot in power connectivity, youth empowerment programmes like the transformed National Youth Service to help every hustler and suffer,” said Ruto.

Although insecurity particularly terror attacks by the Al-Shabaab militia has been a threat to national security, Ruto said the government has intervened by ensuring proper coordination exists among various security agencies leading to a decline in attacks.
