Nakuru - A section of the 2007/2008 post election violence victims in Subukia constituency, Nakuru County have accused the International Criminal Court (ICC) and the government of Kenya of betraying them and denying them justice.
The IDPs living at the Mawingu camp said that all their hopes had been pegged on the ICC cases but the outcome soaked their hearts.
Led by their chairman Simon Mwangi, the victims blamed the government for failing to fully cooperate with the ICC, something they said denied them the badly needed justice.

"If only the government of Kenya could have cooperated with the ICC then PEV victims would have gotten justice. The government betrayed victims and played a role in denying them justice and that is sad," said Mwangi.
He added: "ICC on it's part failed to carry out concrete investigations and this limited the evidence they had, something that contributed to the collapse of the cases."
The victims called on the government to resettle all the remaining IDPs before the next general election.
