MP turned down millions to testify against Uhuru at ICC

25 April 2016, 23:57

Nairobi - A former Naivasha MP claims she rejected offers worth millions of shillings from the ICC to testify against President Uhuru.

According to The Star, Jayne Kihara publicly narrated how officers from the international court tried to woo her to be a key witness in Uhuru's crimes against humanity case.

"I refused to be lured by those lucrative deals and ended up becoming a key defense witness. That is how the case against the President collapsed," said Kihara.

Uhuru faced charges at The Hague alongside Deputy President William Ruto and journalist Joshua Sang. His case was dismissed in December 2014 and the one against Ruto and Sang on April 5.

Ruto and Sang's case was ended "due to a troubling incidence of witness interference and intolerable political meddling".

Kihara hosted more than 500 people at her home in Maraigushu at the weekend when she announced intentions to vie for the Naivasha MP seat.

Al Jazeera reports that the ICC has now turned its sights on Burundi.

The international war crimes court will investigate allegations of imprisonment and violence in Burundi, which has been plagued by unrest since a political crisis erupted a year ago.

The office of the UN estimates at least 430 people have been killed in Burundi since April 2015, when President Pierre Nkurunziza launched a bid for a third term in office.

He went on to win a disputed election in July.
