Nairobi - President Uhuru Kenyatta has confirmed that he had filed a case against mobile service providers Safaricom and Airtel to protect his interests as in the forthcoming trials at the International Criminal Court (ICC).
The President reacted to an article by the Executive Director of International Centre for Policy and Conflict Ndung’u Wainaina in which he (Kenyatta) is accused of using the petitions to propel propaganda, Capital News reports.
In a statement issued to media on Tuesday night and signed by State House Spokesperson Manoah Esipisu, Kenyatta said that he had a right to request for an in-camera session over the issue as he worked to have his name cleared at the Hague-based court, and that the petitions were part of his defene preparations.
