Annan: Do not elect ICC suspects

Nairobi - Daily Nation reports that former UN secretary - general Kofi Annan has urged Kenyans not to elect politicians who have been indicted by the International Criminal Court in the upcoming General Elections.

Though he did not mention Deputy Prime Minister Uhuru Kenyatta and Eldoret North MP William Ruto, the former chief mediator told the media that electing such leaders will sour Kenya’s relations with the international community.
