Nairobi - Lawyers representing President Uhuru Kenyatta in his case at the International Criminal Court have asked the judges to drop it because the prosecution lacks enough evidence to try him.

The Gambian lawyer blamed Kenya's failure to cooperate for her decision to delay prosecuting President Kenyatta for murder, deportation, rape, persecution and "other inhumane acts" during the 2007/8 post election violence.
On Tuesday, Bensouda insisted she had not dropped the case, but had a duty to tell the judges that she did not have the evidence needed to proceed at this stage.
