Nairobi - A defiant Coalition for Reforms and Democracy leader, Raila Odinga says he will not record a statement with the police over ICC fixing allegations.
The opposition chief on Sunday said he does not intend to record a statement with any security state agency over the recent claims made by Gatundu South MP, Moses Kuria concerning the cases facing Deputy President William Ruto and journalist Joshua arap Sang at the International Criminal Court (ICC).
The former Prime Minister through his legal adviser, Paul Mwangi, said the Gatundu South legislator who made the allegations should carry his own cross.
"Raila Odinga will not be recording a statement with any State agency over the 'disclosures' by Moses Kuria regarding the Kenyan cases at the ICC," said the statement by Mwangi in part.

"Odinga shall not intend to indulge the idle curiosity of investigative agencies by recording a statement and reiterates that Kuria should be charged on his own confession of crimes against the International Crimes Act," added the statement.
Last Thursday, the Director of Public Prosecutions Keriako Tobiko ordered police to investigate Kuria over claims that he and other political leaders fixed Deputy President William Ruto in the International Criminal Court (ICC) case.
The DPP directed the police to also interrogate all the people Kuria mentioned as having influenced the witnesses in the Ruto case.
Those mentioned by Kuria include Raila, Kisumu Senator Anyang Nyongo, and Narc leader Martha Karua.
