Women stage a demo over UhuRuto cases

30 October 2013, 11:11 Samuel Kisika

Nairobi - A group of women drawn from across the country, calling themselves Women Peace Net (WOPEN), staged a demo Tuesday in Nairobi demanding the deferral of the cases facing President Uhuru Kenyatta and his Deputy William Ruto at the ICC.

Led by their Chair, Joyce Wambui, the group stated that the Court should respect the two principals as their entrusted heads of State.

"ICC's decision of holding our elected leaders at The Hague is humiliation because they have to deliver to their citizens," said Wambui.

Wambui said the proceedings of the ICC cases will contribute to the arousal of unpleasant post-election scars despite a lot of effort having been made for national reconciliation, healing, accountability and the IDP resettlement.

Wambui added that due to the current high level of insecurity in the country, the two principals have to be in the country to discharge their duties.

"The deferral of the ICC cases would increase the ability of the government to deal with terrorism threats and matters of security domestically, regionally and internationally," said Wambui.

She further opposed ICC's decision to arrest and detain former journalist Baraza at The Hague, saying that Kenya has its own courts capable of dealing with cases facing its citizens.
