Nairobi - The Standard reports that the government wants The Hague trials against two presidential candidates — Deputy Prime Minister Uhuru Kenyatta and Eldoret North MP William Ruto — postponed because of the likelihood of a run-off in the race to State House.
Though it is not clear if the State will formally seek the delay through an appeal to the International Criminal Court, Attorney General Githu Muigai told an international forum on The Hague-based court that ICC should be flexible and sensitive to Kenya’s plea.
Githu who was speaking at the ICC conference in Nuremberg, Germany went on to add that the Kenyan case is more complex because two suspects are presidential aspirants in next year’s polls.
