Raila's ICC project failing, Duale says
01 February 2016, 18:42
Nairobi - CORD leader Raila Odinga's International Criminal Court ICC project is failing, thus his continued tirades against any action taken against the ICC by African leaders, Majority Leader in the National Assembly Aden Duale has said.
Duale was reacting to a statement by the CORD leader criticizing African Union leaders of quitting the ICC for their own personal benefit.
Raila accused African leaders of denying people their rights and stated that he feared leaders would take action on their own hands without fear of being taken forward to the international court.
" This will seriously undermine the level of justice in a continent already struggling to survive the high level of injustices," he said.
The statement followed a resolution by Kenya to quit the ICC being supported by other African nations during the just ended AU summit in Addis Ababa.
Duale believes that Raila was among those who planned to have Deputy President William Ruto taken to the ICC and has accused him of feeling bad that his case is slowly falling apart.
" Odinga's unsolicited accusations on the AU resolution to withdraw from
ICC that it will undermine justice in Africa is far from the truth," he said Monday.
" Odinga claims to be speaking for Africa but the truth is he is in the list of African leaders who do not believe in Africans," he added.
Duale insisted that Raila was looking our for his own interests as regards his political future.
" His main worry is his project that he has used against his political competitors to ascend to power is collapsing," he continued.
" His hand in the case against President Uhuru Kenyatta, which collapsed, and the one facing DP William Ruto as well as Journalist Joshua Sang, has always been visible," he accused.
