Uhuru ICC mockery borne out of frustration

09 October 2014, 15:18 William Korir

Nairobi - President Uhuru Kenyatta termed his trip to the Hague as a time wasting exercise, borne out of frustration over the unending process.

The president was in defiant mood Thursday in Nairobi upon arrival back in the country from the Hague where he had been to attend a status conference at the International Criminal Court ICC.

He told supporters in Nairobi that despite the fact that there was nothing much to mention on the case, he would still comply with what the trial chambers wants.

" You saw we went all the way there, sat for three hours, said nothing then came back home. It is as if they just wanted to see me there," he mocked during a rally in the city outside his Harambee House office.

He insisted that he would still comply with whatever the court wants to clear his name, even though he sounded frustrated by the events at the ICC.

" It is frustrating but I will comply as I have and I know God is with me all the way as he has shown so far," He added.

The fate of the case in itself will be known in two weeks time when judges decide on whether to either postpone, take forward to the assembly or kill the case.

Lawyer and political analyst Jimmy Wandera says that the president is right to mock the ICC for playing games in his case.

" I think he is just frustrated. There was clearly no need for the president to head to the ICC as said and now we see after the trip, there was really no need," he says.

" The president is just calling for what he knows is inevitable. I do not blame him for his outburst," Wandera adds.

Analysts believe that there is a high possibility of the president's case being dismissed by the ICC come end of October at their ruling.
