Sonko leads Hague demonstration

08 October 2014, 17:46 William Korir

Nairobi - Nairobi Senator Mike Mbuvi Sonko led a mini-demonstration at the Hague against alleged harassment of president Uhuru Kenyatta.

The Senator and six others in full gear shouted and screamt the president's innocence outside the Hague based court Wednesday before and during the status conference.

They sang songs of solidarity and even went to the point of dropping to the ground and shouting.

They were dressed in orange overalls and Kenyan coloured scarves and other memorabilia.

According to the Nairobi Senator, the president has been unfairly treated by the ICC and called on the charges against him at the Court to be immediately dropped.

" The president is innocent and that is a fact they must accept and live with," he said.

He called on the court to drop the charges and said that he and other Kenyans would demonstrate to the world if their request is not taken seriously.

" We are here to represent the feelings of Kenyans and nothing will stop us," he added.

The case according to many Kenyans at the Hague is all but dead and they feel it is prudent the trial judges heed the request by the president and his team for the president to be acquitted.

" As we can see, it is dead and we ask the judges to do us a favour and let the president go free, Cabinet Secretary Najib Balala said.

On his part, Senator Kipchumba Murkomen said that it was just a matter of time before the case collapses.

" As has been shown, this one will not go far. Even if they postpone it, we know they have no evidence. It is just a matter of time, he added.

The trial judges have now retreated to decide on the fate of the case.
