14 October 2013, 11:07
Nairobi - The Deputy President, William Ruto, has expressed full confidence of winning the ICC cases pressed against him and President Kenyatta at the Hague.
Addressing christian faithfuls at Deliverance Church in Umoja Estate Sunday, Ruto said the allegations against them on the post-election violence are baseless going by the evidence given by witnesses at the Hague.
"It is clear that accusations laid upon us are baseless considering the open lies testified by the second witness, 326. Thus, I have confidence that at last we shall come out clean," said Ruto.
Ruto further said that ICC should grant AU's request to withdraw their cases from the Hague since 'the Court has been majorly targeting dawned African States leaving out the Western countries'.
On Saturday, Ruto expressed support for Au's stand regarding the ICC cases saying that ICC should respect Kenyan's decision of electing them as their leaders.
"ICC should listen to God's voice through our citizens who elected us as their leaders. AU head of States have resolved in one accord for the cases we are facing to be withdrawn," stated Ruto.
His sentiments come at a time when a group of Western diplomats want cases against President Kenyatta deferred for a year.
