Nairobi - Leaders aligned to the ruling Jubilee coalition have supported DP William Ruto's declaration to forgive all those who fixed him at the International Criminal Court Court (ICC).
Led by Senators Kipchumba Murkomen (Elgeyo marakwet), Aaron Cheruiyot (Kericho), Naisula Lesuuda (nominated) and Narok Governor Samuel Tunai, they said the move by Ruto should be emulated by all Kenyans.
Speaking during a fundraising of over 600 women to facilitate them in funding their communal projects, Murkomen said that a time has come when politicians are expected to engage in uniting politics and bring Kenyans together.
Cheruiyot says Kenyans are in a good position now to build a united country knowing that everyone stands a chance to gain from the country's leadership.

The Deputy President on Friday said all those who conspired to bring up crimes against humanity charges against him at the International Criminal Court Court (ICC) are forgiven.
During his first press briefing three days after the Hague based court terminated his case and that of journalist Joshua Arap Sang, the DP said he has pardoned all those who contributed to his plight.
“I have searched my conscience and soul and I have chosen to forgive all those who gave false testimony against me,” he said at the briefing at his Karen office.
ICC Judges Chile Eboe-Osuji, Olga Herrera Carbuccia and Robert Fremr Tuesday gave a key ruling that set the duo scot-free, bringing to an end a tormenting case for the two individuals that has lasted for over six years.
