Njenga decries State harassment over ICC cases

28 November 2013, 14:13

Nairobi - Former leader of the outlawed Mungiki sect, Maina Njega, has decried State harassment over the cases facing President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto, at The Hague.

Njenga asked the High Court to strike out a criminal case filed against him, arguing that it was being used to intimidate him since he had links to the outlawed sect, which the International Criminal Court’s prosecution says took part in the 2007/8 post election violence, The Star reports.

President Kenyatta’s defence lawyers want the 15 people who confessed to be members of the sect and are expected to testify against him prosecuted by the government.

They also want the witnesses allowed to testify in public and handed over to the Kenyan government for prosecution after their confession of being criminals.

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.
