Mt Kenya lawmakers accuse Ruto's rivals of bid to revive ICC case - 3 months ago, 12 Nov 00:40
Mt Kenya lawmakers Sunday hit out at Deputy President William Ruto’s opponents accusing them of a plot to lock him out of the 2022 presidential race by adducing fresh evidence to the International Criminal Court.
The politicians claimed that Mr Ruto’s rivals were crafting ways of scuttling his ambitions by providing ICC with information to build on a case against him regarding the 2007/2008 post-election violence.
Led by Kikuyu MP Kimani Ichung’wa, the MPs speaking during a fundraiser at PCEA Kangaita in Tetu Constituency, Nyeri County, said that an attempt to pin down Mr Ruto will not succeed.
Among the lawmakers present were James Gichuhi (Tetu), Kanini Kega (Kieni), Jane Kihara (Naivasha), Ndindi Nyoro (Kiharu), Sylvanus Osoro (South Mugirango) and Patrick Mariru (Laikipia West).
Mr Ichung'wa said that those opposing the DP were giving information to the ICC prosecution to frustrate his quest to succeed President Kenyatta in 2022.
