Ruto's ICC case has made Jubilee stronger, says MP

26 August 2015, 21:31 Jackson Okata

Nairobi - Six legislators from South Rift Valley have tried to allay fears that the Jubilee Coalition may disintegrate following a move by ICC to use recanted witness statements against DP Ruto.

Speaking Tuesday in Nakuru town, Bomet Senator Wilfred Lesan, National Assembly deputy speaker Joyce Laboso and MPs Ronald Tonui (Bomet Central), Bernard Bett (Bomet East), Joseph Limo (Kipkelion East MP) and Ken Kiloku (Narok East MP) said that the Jubilee alliance was here to stay.

They said the coalition will be made stronger by their common goal to see the case against Ruto defeated.

They said Ruto has cultivated a good relationship with members from across the divide.

Laboso said it was everyone’s prayer that the cases against Ruto and co-accused radio presenter Joshua Sang were concluded urgently in their favour.

She dismissed the argument that the coalition was brought together by the ICC cases.

Laboso faulted the ICC for trying to use recanted statements against the DP, saying that is “totally unacceptable” in the legal circles.

“It is becoming apparent that the court has ulterior motives. Luckily Kenyans have understood this and we are asking all Kenyans to hold prayers for the Deputy President,” Tonui said.

Lesan expressed optimism that the case would end soon calling on Kenyans to be patient.

He said Jubilee coalition will last long after 2022 citing the unity of leaders in the coalition as the binding factor.

Limo said Kenyans and friends of the country should petition the ICC to disallow recanted statements.
