Ruto buoyant ahead of trial resumption

Nairobi - Deputy President William Ruto was defiant ahead of the resumption of his trial for the alleged crimes against humanity.
He was confident that the International Criminal Court in The Hague had no case against him and thus would be acquitted.
At a prayer meeting on Sunday, ahead of the resumption of the trial on Tuesday, he read a Bible quote and assured the citizens they had nothing to worry about.
“They will prove my innocence and I will come back so that we continue with the development agenda,” he said.
His assurances came a day after four witnesses withdrew from the case.
Several others pulled out before the case could begin last week.
The case was subsequently postponed.
Ruto is mainly cited in the incident where families that had taken refuge in Kiambaa church were burnt alive.
