Uhuru under pressure as ICC summon awaits

22 September 2014, 13:34 William Korir

Nairobi - The Jubilee coalition will this week state its official stand on the summon by the ICC court to president Uhuru Kenyatta even though they know a decision lies on a personal level with the president.

From noises within the Jubilee camp already, it seems there will be a unanimous decision for the president to ignore the summon to the Hague as it seems it will likely be.

The president has thus far never attended the court whilst in office and with an AU resolution in place for him to avoid the trip, he will have reason to ignore.

And with Jubilee leaders already clamouring for him to not go, he will have to make a hard decision in the coming weeks.

" Him ignoring the warrant would be taken as dissent and that is not a charge he wants to walk around with, especially considering his case is bordering on collapse ", Lawyer Elvis King'ara says.

" At the end of the day, the decision lies with the president and his advisers and they will know what to do ", he adds.

Already, MPs within the coalition feel that the president will be undermined by heading there and have already stated their stand.

Majority leader in parliament Aden Duale though, says that an official stand will be taken but will likely be independent from the president.

" We will meet this week and likely have a stand by Thursday ", he said of the meeting.

" Our concern is for the well being of the president and we will make a decision that takes all the matters in hand ", he added.

Those against the president ignoring the summon feel that he will only compromise himself by doing so.

" The decision in the end will be personal because he, not us is at the Hague so we need to be sensitive to that. My personal view is that he will compromise himself by not going ", King'ara says.

Duale has in the meantime urged Kenyans to be calm.

" I urge calm and ask Kenyans to wait calmly as we see the way forward".
