Fourth ICC witness disowns prosecution evidence

21 October 2013, 23:49

Nairobi - In another twist in this very publicized trial at the International Criminal Court in the Hague. The prosecution in the trial against Deputy President William Ruto and journalist Joshua arap Sang were dealt a blow when the fourth witness brought up by the prosecution renounced a section of the testimony that the prosecution was using to tie Ruto to the term madoadoa , Capital FM reports.

The trial has had its fair share of twists and turns already. It was announced last week that President Uhuru Kenyatta would only have to be present at certain , critical points during the trial in which he is facing charges of crimes against humanity. Kenyatta and his deputy Ruto were charged by the ICC under the Rome Statue for organizing violence after the 2007 election. 

The witness's testimony did not match-up with the prosecutions storyline as the man denied attending a rally at the 64 stadium in Eldoret during the election period in 2007.
