ODM MP supports Kenya's withdrawal from ICC

03 February 2015, 11:23 Wilshere

Nakuru - Nakuru West MP Samuel Arama has said he fully supports President Uhuru Kenyatta's pledge of KES 90 million towards the formation the African Court of Justice.

The ODM MP said that there is nothing wrong with the President Kenyatta's pledge saying that he is the head of state and that he is aware where the money will come from.

“I support him fully and people should stop asking where all that money is going to come from because as the President he has his own money,” he said.

Arama also said that he support Kenya and other African countries withdrawing from ICC saying that the International Criminal Court (ICC) has become a political court.

Speaking to News24 on phone on Tuesday, Arama said that ICC has only been arresting African leaders and has never imprisoned any leader from Europe.

He said the formation ACJ will help Africans deal with their own problems without external forces.

“ICC has become a political court and that is why I am supporting the new formation of ACJ because it will be able to deal with cases directly,” he said.

Arama also hit out on those leaders who are opposed to the idea saying they are the main people who are being used by western countries to fix African leaders.

He said ICC doesn’t understand fully the real problems that are ailing Africans.

President Uhuru on Saturday pledged to contribute KES 90 million towards the formation of ACJ but the move has elicited sharp criticism from opposition.

Cord Principal Raila Odinga has so far said that the pledge was too high for the struggling Kenyan economy.
