Why Ruto is angry with Bensouda

03 May 2016, 22:06 William Korir

Nairobi - DP William Ruto is unhappy with International Criminal Court ICC prosecutor Fatou Bensouda and wants her taken to trial for several offences. But why?

The DP was released from the ICC last month after his crimes against humanity charges were dropped.

He stated that he had forgiven all those that testified against him and had moved on.

The DP though is not done with the ICC.

Ruto's defence made a request to ICC judges on Monday saying there is sufficient evidence that prosecution witnesses deliberately gave false testimony to the Chamber.

The team said the evidence is in the trial record and in the possession of the Office of The Prosecutor and the Defence.

" The DP is convinced that there was wrongdoing and wants no one else to go through the same fate in future," a source close to the DP told News24.

Ruto argues that OTP intermediaries and witnesses P-0613 and P-0800 have tampered and/or interfered with the collection of evidence by the OTP.

This, he said, was by identifying and coaching witnesses to give false information to the OTP during investigations, which then formed the basis of its case against him.

Ruto further argued that there is evidence that some prosecution staff may have sought sexual favours from witnesses and their families in exchange for cooked evidence. 

" There is evidence that there was sexual manipulation. That too will be explored," the source added.

The new case comes despite the DP and President Uhuru Kenyatta stating that they had ensured that there would be no return by Kenya to the ICC.
