Nairobi - The third witness in the ongoing trial of William Ruto and Joshua Sang at the ICC told court that supporters of ODM in Eldoret looted and destroyed property belonging to their perceived rivals from Central Kenya.
The witness further narrated that Luos and Luhyas were looting as Kalenjins burnt down properties belonging to Kikuyus who were supporting Mwai Kibaki in the 2007 general election, Daily Nation reports.
According to her, about 100 youths had been ferried from Marura to conduct the atrocities, and were targeting both business premises and homes. Most of the attacks occurred in the evening, immediately after Mwai Kibaki was announced the winner of the then disputed presidential election.
The witness, who was watching the events unfold from her hideout in Kimumu are, will continue with her testimony on Tuesday before the defence teams of William Ruto and Joshua Sang cross examine her.
