Kenyan delegation in the UK to negotiate for Ruto ICC release
16 November 2015, 16:22
Nairobi - A delegation is currently in the United Kingdom to negotiate for a number of matters including the current ICC case facing DP William Ruto and the visit of UK Prime Minister David Cameron to the country.
The meeting has seen some high powered government officials travel to the UK to speak on those as well as other issues.
The delegation is led by Defence CS Raychelle Omamo as conformed by her office.
" The CS is in the United Kingdom and will not be in office this week," the reply News24 received stated.
Kenya is looking for western support to have the case facing Ruto and journalist Joshua Sang halted.
Kenya and other African states believe that the case against Ruto should await till he leaves office.
Kenya is also contesting the use of recanted evidence in the case, a move that has also been backed up by other African countries.
Ruto is facing crimes against humanity charges at the ICC for his alleged role in the 2008 Post Election violence.
Kenya is also keen to have Cameron travel to the country in the coming months, to follow up on the already seen visits of US President Barrack Obama and the soon to be visit of Pope Francis.
