The Hague - Deputy President William Ruto was on Friday granted three days leave from ICC trials so he can run the country as the President attends a meeting in Rwanda.
Daily Nation reports that Kenyatta will be traveling to Rwanda on Monday for a tripartite meeting aimed at addressing issues affecting the region, such as security and infrastructure.
However, Ruto’s application for leave had faced opposition from lead trial lawyer, Anton Steynberg, who warned that similar applications might not be considered in the future. Ruto’s case will continue in his absence, and he is expected to accept the testimony made against him by witness 268.
