Nairobi - Homa Bay Senator, Moses Kajwang’ has said Jubilee’s prayer rallies for Deputy President William Ruto’s case at The Hague are political and will not force the withdrawal of the case.
According to Kajwang’, the utterances by some Jubilee leaders during the prayer rallies may be a proof that Kenya is not cooperating with The Hague-based court as claimed by the prosecution.
“The International Criminal Court prosecutor has always accused Kenya of non-cooperation, threatening and bribing of witnesses in the cases and the remarks by some leaders during the prayer rallies may be proving this point,” Kajwang’ said.

Kajwang’ said Jubilee leaders should have followed laid down procedures to have the cases withdrawn from ICC and be brought back home because of the unity of this country.
“We should sit down as a nation and agree on how the case against Ruto and Sang’ can be handled locally.
“President Uhuru Kenyatta should petition the UN security council to have the cases withdrawn from the ICC and be handled within Kenya’s geographical boundaries,” Kajwang’ said.
He said this will be fair to the victims of the 2007/8 post election skirmishes and even guarantee healing and reconciliation in the country.
