Nairobi - The number of victims in the case against President Uhuru Kenyatta at the International Criminal Court has risen to 725.
The number, which stood at 571, was raised following the admission of 154 more victims of the 2007/8 post-election violence.
The new victims are said to have been admitted from Migori, Kisumu, Siaya, Busia, and Vihiga.
They claim they were forcefully evicted from their homes and lost their property during the violence.
Others said they were beaten, gang-raped and parts of their bodies mutilated by youths who were armed with machetes.

This comes even as ICC Prosecutor Fatou Bensouda asked the judges to postpone the start of President Kenyatta’s trial indefinitely due to lack of enough evidence.
ICC judges summoned President Kenyatta to attend a status conference scheduled for 8 October at The Hague based court.
