Uhuru: Nothing left in ICC case

08 October 2014, 17:46 William Korir

Nairobi - President Uhuru Kenyatta has said that there is nothing left in the ICC case where he is charged with aiding and abating crimes against humanity.

The president has been forced to attend the status conference in his yet to begin trial at the Hague Wednesday and after listening to submissions from both the prosecution and defence teams, he was of the opinion that the case is dead.

Speaking after the conclusion to the status conference at the ICC, the president said that there is still nothing to prove allegations against him.

" We have come all this way and still there is nothing", he said on the steps of the court to cheers from supporters including members of parliament and Cabinet Secretaries.

The president has always maintained his innocence in the matter and insists that the trip to the ICC was designed to test him.

" I have taken the extraordinary decision to travel to the Hague", he said Monday, arguing that he could have decided against the trip but for his vision to have the case ended.

His lawyer Stephen Kay also made his thoughts clear on the state of the case.

"The case has failed. It has failed in a way that there's no prospect to go further," he said.

"It would be an affront to common sense to say that we are not entitled to an acquittal," Kay added after the prosecution admitted that they have no evidence to currently push the case to trial.

The president is expected back in the country any-time now and said he would go back to development building while waiting for the judges decision.

" I will go back to my job, which is building Kenya and I thank you all for your support," he told the gathering at the ICC.
There is expected to be a procession to welcome the president back to the country Thursday in Nairobi even though the details are yet to be confirmed.
