Mutula Plea To Kenyatta, Ruto

Mutula Plea To Kenyatta, Ruto

Justice Minister Mutula Kilonzo has added a new twist to the impending Pre-Trial Chamber’s ruling asking Deputy Prime Minister Uhuru Kenyatta and Eldoret North MP William Ruto not to vie for presidency if the charges against them are confirmed. Mutula says it will be an act of impunity if the two continued their campaigns for presidency after the charges are confirmed.

Kilonzo who spoke Wednesday morning made the appeal as the country waited the ICC court’s ruling with bated breath. The ruling is to be issued before 23rd January 2012. The Judges are expected to post the ruling on their website and suspects and their defense lawyers need not to go to The Hague. The Justice Minister says according to him, it was wrong for anyone to go ahead and vie for presidency yet they are facing charges before the ICC. Mutula was speaking during the launch of survey on human rights perception in East Africa. He also backed the recent high court advisory of a March general election saying it was proper. Mutula said it was impossible to hold elections this year due to some unfulfilled tasks pertaining to the new constitution. He cited registration of voters, settlement of IDPs and civic education as some areas that need to be addressed before the general election. All this he argued cannot be done before March next year.
