ICC gave victims false hopes, Uhuru says

05 April 2016, 23:11

Nairobi - President Uhuru Kenyatta has accused the ICC of giving victims of Post Election Violence false hopes over the cases. 

President Kenyatta has also expressed his excitement over the acquittal of Deputy President William Ruto and former journalist Joshua arap Sang by the International Criminal Court.

He says the decision was overdue as the two were innocent against accusation of facilitating post election violence after the 2007 poll.

“I am delighted that the Deputy President and Joshua Sang’s innocence has been vindicated by a decision of no-case-to answer at the ICC. This moment is long overdue but no less joyful. I join my brothers in celebrating their moment of justice,” the Head of State said from France, moments after the announcement by ICC.

“I must remark on the fact that the victory in this matter is partial and the quest for justice incomplete, because the International Criminal Court elected to blindly pursue ill-conceived, defective agenda at the expense of accountability for PEV,” he said.

He said that the government will continue with the process of helping the victims get justice to ensure full healing and reconciliation as many of them still victims await justice, and perpetrators are yet to be brought to account.

“We will continue the work of healing the nation, uniting the people, reconciling communities and ensuring that justice for the victims is achieved.”

All the ICC has been doing he says, is giving Kenyans false hope “and as a result, occasioned much disappointment. We will do everything to make it up for Kenyans where this international institution has failed them.”
