Uhuru ignores ICC talk as he eyes Obama success

21 July 2015, 16:43 William Korir

Nairobi - President Uhuru Kenyatta was keen to avoid talk of his government's links to the International Criminal Court ICC as he seeks to ensure a successful visit by US President Barrack Obama.

Uhuru was hounded severally by questions from journalists regarding his earlier case at the ICC and also the ongoing one against Deputy President William Ruto but he avoided all, instead focussing on the fact that there is need to ensure Obama's visit is a success.

" All our energy is on ensuring that the visit is a success and that is all," he said at State House Tuesday.

The issue of the ICC trials has dominated foreign press in the build-up to the visit, with many of the opinion that the visit by Obama to the country is so because of the fact that Uhuru's case at the ICC was dropped.

The President though was quick to change the narrative.

" Kenya has shown that it is among the fastest growing nations in the world as well as being one of the best places in the continent to invest," he returned.

Obama and President Uhuru Kenyatta are co-hosting the Sixth Global Entrepreneurship Summit at the UN headquarters, Gigiri.

The two will hold bilateral talks at State House, Nairobi on Saturday and then give an address at Safaricom Stadium Kasarani on Sunday.

Uhuru was confident the visit would be a success.

" We have prepared accordingly and would like to welcome the US President to Kenya and we urge Kenyans to do their best to ensure his visit is a success," he added.

Obama arrives in the country Friday 24 July and will spend three days to leave on Sunday 26 July.
