Uhuru to announce Hague decision as defence team heads to the Hague

06 October 2014, 15:14 William Korir

Nairobi - President Uhuru Kenyatta will announce publicly whether he will travel to the Hague even as his defence team left the country.

The address will be part of a special sitting where he will talk about a number of issues even though the main matter will be expected to be on matter ICC.

The CORD coalition had said that its members will not attend the sitting, even though that was up for debate with some members saying they would attend.

Uhuru and his ICC summon though will be the main part of the afternoon programme.

His defence team though, it emerged has already left for the Hague and it is expected according to many reports that the president will follow suit.

" It is not certain whether he will go to the Hague as I have heard so far and the final decision according to my knowledge is yet to be known, a State House source said.

" The feeling has been that it is not in his and the defence team's mantra to abscond. It will not show a big picture of the country and that has maybe informed their decision, the source added.

Most Jubilee coalition members have urged the president to travel to the Hague and clear his name but with an African Union resolution protecting him, he might just say no to the summon.

" If he decides to stay we will support him as he is the president and if he goes we will go with him, Lands Cabinet Secretary Charity Ngilu said.

All await the president's speech.
