Nairobi - Kenya has rejected Britain’s proposal to have President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto excused from being physically present in the courtroom at The Hague, but instead be allowed to attend the trial via video link.
According to a senior government official, who The Standard says spoke on condition of anonymity, the government does not want the offer and that is not part of the agenda Kenya and the African Union are taking to the International Criminal Court State Parties meeting.
The official further claimed that Britain refused to support Kenya and the AU on the deferral of the cases for one year and even went further to incite other nations to turn down the plea.
