Uhuru leads Jubilee in celebrating collapse of ICC cases

16 April 2016, 12:16

Nairobi – President Uhuru Kenyatta is set to lead a thanksgiving service at Afraha stadium, as the Jubilee celebrates the termination of International Criminal Court (ICC) cases against Deputy President William Ruto and journalist Joshua Sang.

The ICC terminated the case against Ruto and ended his trial early this month.

The court said there was insufficient evidence he was involved in deadly violence that erupted after the 2007 presidential elections. 

Ruto had been charged alongside Sang with murder, deportation and persecution for their allaged leading roles in the violence that left more than 1 000 people dead.

According to Daily Nation, Jubilee members of parliament said the thanks giving ceremony would serve to unite Kenyans.

But Cord leader Raila Odinga, equated it to a "dance macabre", a French phrase that means a “dance of death”, that disrespects the victims of the post election violence in 2007/8.

"As a nation there is nothing to celebrate about, we need to condole, reparate and a national sense of justice that needs to be reconfirmed, Raila was quoted as saying in a statement.
