Mungiki ICC witnesses risk prosecution

13 November 2013, 09:14

The Hague - The 15 people who confessed to be members of the outlawed Mungiki sect and are expected to testify against President Uhuru Kenyatta at The Hague should be prosecuted by the government.

According to President Kenyatta’s defence lawyers, the witnesses should be allowed to testify in public and handed over to the Kenyan government for prosecution after their confession of being criminals, The Standard reports.

However, Bensouda sought to assure the witnesses that their self-confessed evidence would not be used to prosecute them in her application to the ICC judges.

President Kenyatta is accused of having links with the outlawed sect that is alleged to have committed crimes against humanity during the 2007/8 post election violence.

The trial was postponed until February next year.
