Kenyatta and Ruto to face ICC trial over Kenya violence

Posted by Administrator on January 23, 2012

THE HAGUE, Netherlands (AP) — International Criminal Court judges on Monday ordered four prominent Kenyans, including two potential presidential candidates, to stand trial for allegedly orchestrating a deadly wave of violence triggered by their country’s disputed 2007 presidential election.

Among the four suspects sent for trial were Deputy Prime Minister and Finance Minister Uhuru Kenyatta and former Education Minister William Ruto, who both are planning to run for the presidency this year.

More than 1,000 people were killed in postelection violence in Kenya after police ejected observers from the center where votes were being tallied and the electoral body declared President Mwai Kibaki the winner.

    If they found reasons for Ruto to stand trial then they should have found reasons for Kosgey to stand trial too since both were co-conspirators. Kosgey and Mudavidi are some of the worst tribalist leaders in Kenya today. Kosgey operates under the radar. He is one of the most corrupt Moi era politicianis still in high profile. The decision of ICC to let him go without answering some charges leaves one wondering about its impartiality in the whole process. I think ICC has an agenda in Kenya and is more concerned with who wins in the next presidential election than finding the real truth about who was behind the bloodshed that took place. By letting Kosgey go its obvious ICC did it to prop a certain candidate who together with another politician should have been in Ocamp eight. ICC is a political organization and should be disbanded

    The whole Icc thing is just but a political ruling according to me, there are sympathisers in some way. I will take a very brief example not forgetting about what somebody just said about the tribal leader mr Kosgey.
    Mr Muthaura is accussed of ordering mr Ali to instruct the Police work alongside the Mungiki, although these were white lies, i wonder why muthaura was confirmed & Ali was not. All in all the only people who are supposed to be sitting at the Hague is Raia & Kibaki. We have Votes now & we are the ones to decide who rules Kenya mot the ICC. Ekatrina can go Hang.. They should Arrest Bashir first & not try to make the Hague a powerful court by using Kenya as an example.

    Ni nani aliyeamrisha wanawake na watoto wachomwe moto katika hekalu Takatifu la Kiambaa mjini Eldoret? Dalili zimeanza kuonyeshana. Ni nani aliyewachochea vijana katika bonde la ufa kuwaua, kuwang’oa, kuwakandamiza, kuwaibia mifigi zao, na kuwachomea Wakenya makazi yao wakati wa uchaguzi wa 2007? Haki sasa yaelekea kutobokea wazi. Ni akina nani waliowahangaisha Wakenya kule Mombasa, Kisumu, Eldoret, Narok, Nairegi Angare, Enoo Supukia, visingiti vya Mlima Elgon, Bomet, Kericho, Njoro, Molo, Kipkelion, Kedowa, Kwa Rhoda na Kaptemba(Nakuru). Nd’o sasa tunanisia ukweli ukifichuka kwa nguvu za Mwenyezi Mungu.

    Cha kuhusunisha ni kwamba wengi waliohusika na vitendo wanakanyanga barabara kana kwamba wao hawakutenda lolote. Na wanajua kinagaubaga kwamba sheria za serikali ya Kenya hutungiwa tu wezi wa kuku, mifugo, na wanyakua vibeti lakini sio viongozi ambao wametupa fedheha zaidi ya miongo minne tangu tulipopata uhuru. Lakini usipopata haki kutoka kwa serikali yako, unamkimbilia nani? Kwanza ni Mungu na hapo baadaye mahakama ya Kimataifa ya jinai ya ICC.

    Bila shaka sasa Kenya imeingizwa katika madaftari ya historia kama nchi ambayo ilishindwa kuwahukumu washukiwa na watuhumiwa waliosababisha vifo vya zaidi ya watu 1300 wasiokuwa na hatia yoyote. Nani atakayekubali kubatilisha kesi ambayo ina ushahidi wa kutosha kiasi hicho? La kufurahisha katika uamuzi uliosomwa na Jaji Trendafilova kwa niaba ya jopo la majaji wa ICC ni kwamba uhalifu dhidi ya binadamu, mauaji, kuwahamisha watu kwa nguvu, ubakaji na mateso sasa itakuwa kama kitendawili. yetu ni kuomba iwe hivyo miaka yingi zijazo.
