Cape Town – Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe reportedly
advised President Uhuru Kenyatta not to attend his trial set to begin at
the International Criminal court (ICC) in The Hague on 12 November.
Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto have been charged with
crimes against humanity for allegedly masterminding the ethnic violence that
left at least 1 100 dead after disputed 2007 elections.
According to News Day, Mugabe’s spokesperson George Charamba
confirmed the president didn’t mince his worlds over the ICC’s alleged
intransigence, saying it was heavily biased against African leaders.
The veteran leader said Kenyatta could not reduce himself by
appearing before ICC when no Western leader had been subjected to such
Mugabe made it clear that the model of the ICC was flawed,
said the report.
