Nairobi - Deputy President William Ruto was handed a one day repreive from his trial at the ICC after the trial chamber judges allowed him leave of absence, reports the Nation.
Ruto's trial resumed Thursday and despite efforts by the chief prosecuter Fatou Bensouda to have him attend the session, the judges ruled in his favour but only for a day.
Bensouda argued that the earlier basis for allowing Ruto stay away from the case was now invalid. Ruto had been granted leave to fill the constitutional requirement of being in the country while President Kenyatta was away on official duty in Kuwait.
