Speaking in Nyandarua today, President Uhuru Kenyatta has attacked Raila Odinga following his remarks on France24 and AFP where he commented that failure by the International Criminal Court (ICC) to try top Kenyan leaders for crimes against humanity spelt “doom” on global efforts in fighting impunity.
The President condemned the former Prime Minister for telling the international community that the ICC suspects, who included Uhuru, ‘should have been arrested’.
“Lakini yako ni kwenda kuharibu jina yetu huko nje na mambo haina Maana – Your business is to drag our names in the mud while abroad, speaking about things that do not add up,” Kenyatta Lamented
“The ICC declared that we have no case to answer. Who are you to start questioning that?” Kenyatta questioned.
The Head of State commented that instead of the Opposition leader trying to scheme his way into power and wishing others evil, he should present his policies and vision to Kenyans in order to be elected.
“It is God who gives people authority and one does not need to falsely accuse others to ascend to power. When I tried and failed the first time in 2002, I accepted defeat and waited and by God’s grace I am now leading the nation.” Kenyatta said.
DP Ruto who was also in the meeting criticized the former Prime Minister stating:
“There is no greater impunity than that by those who plan to jail innocent people for political reasons”.
