STATEMENT BY HIS EXCELLENCY HON MWAI KIBAKI CGH, MP, PRESIDENT AND COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF OF THE DEFENCE FORCES OF THE REPUBLIC OF KENYA FOLLOWING THE DECISION BY THE INTERNATIONAL CRIMINAL COURT PRE-TRIAL CHAMBER, 23RD JANUARY 2012

Fellow Kenyans,

The decision of the International Criminal Court on the Kenyan cases has been released to the effect that four out of the six Kenyans will proceed for trial.

I have with immediate effect directed the Attorney General to constitute a legal team to study the ruling and advise on the way forward.

While the ICC process was underway, we enacted a new Constitution, substantially enhanced the capacity of our criminal justice system and made great strides in the reform within our system in the administration of justice.

We now have a radically transformed judiciary, an independent office of the Director of Public Prosecutions, a police service that is being fundamentally reformed and a functional witness protection agency.

It is now the collective responsibility of all these institutions to ensure justice for all at all times.

In the meantime, I appeal to everyone to remain calm and peaceful. Our great Nation has had its share of challenging times.

On these occasions, we have re-examined our national conscience and moved forward together. We continue to do so.

We re-dedicate ourselves to assist those who were displaced from their homes.
In this regard, I have already directed all relevant government ministries to fast track the resettlement of the remaining Internally Displaced Persons.

Today, we once again search our national conscience, re-dedicate ourselves to a true sense of national reconciliation and forgiveness. Let us move our country forward.

Finally, fellow Kenyans, it is my personal commitment to bequeath present and future generations a secure, united, prosperous and peaceful country.

THANK YOU AND GOD BLESS OUR NATION.
