The elders who had assembled at the Nyayo Gardens said that they were not opposing the ICC trails and that they remain committed in co-operating with the International Criminal Court.

“All we want is peace for our nation as our leaders go to Hague and that’s why we will continue supporting them,” he remarked.
The elders called on political leaders to be in the fore front of uniting Kenyans during the trials.
Wachira said that the ICC should be accorded amble time during the trial of the three Kenyans at the ICC.
He added that the withdrawal of Kenya from the Rome Statute should be resolved amicably between the government and the opposition.
