Kenya’s Vice President ,William Ruto has left for Hague on Monday .Ruto faces crimes against humanity in relation to the
country’s 2007-08 post-election violence.
More than 1,000 Kenyans were killed in tribe-on-tribe attacks following a disputed presidential vote in late 2007.
The ICC prosecutor has also charged Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta. The court schedule currently has both Kenyatta and Ruto in The Hague at the same time in November.
Kenyatta on Sunday said he and Ruto will co-operate with the court but that it’s not possible for both to be at The Hague simultaneously.
Before leaving for Netherlands Ruto asked Kenyans to pray for him and president Uhuru Kenyatta such that they go through the Hague hurdles.
“We believe in a living God and just like he helped us have a peaceful election, the same God will assist us to go through these challenges,” said Mr Ruto.
“We are confident the God who helped us win the elections will be the same God who will vindicate us at the ICC,” he said yesterday during the closure of Naka IDP camp in Eldoret.
“We will go there and speak the truth and leave the rest to God. If we believed him to deliver victory to us, we believe he will help us cross this hurdle,” he said.
