ODM MP to 'support' Uhuru at the Hague

03 October 2014, 19:16 William Korir

Nairobi - An ODM MP will be on the plane to the Hague to support president Uhuru Kenyatta as he heads to the International Criminal Court.

Kajiado Central MP Joseph Nkaissery was at the Netherlands Embassy in Nairobi Friday to apply for a Visa to head to the Hague, together with plenty other politicians.

Asked to comment, he was open to the trip, saying Kenya is a sovereign state that needs to be respected and that he was heading out as a supporter of Kenya as a country and its president.

" I am going there as a Kenyan first to support the president of the country. That is what matters, he briefly said.

It is understood that there are over 100 Mps, Cabinet Secretaries and politicians who will head to the Hague next week to accompany the president.

The president is headed to the Hague to attend the status conference to his crimes against humanity charges at the ICC.

There was initially hot air over whether the president should go or not go to the Hague considering his position, but it is understood that his legal team does not want to build a 'nothing' case for the prosecution by missing out.

" He will go there. I have confirmation. If not, then all the Mps and other senior persons would not be looking for Visas to head out, a source at State House told News24.

It was earlier thought that Ugandan president Yoweri Museveni would travel to the Hague but it has been confirmed he wont.
