NAIROBI, Kenya, Oct 29 – TNA Nairobi county officials have urged President Uhuru Kenyatta not to attend his International Criminal Court trial terming the court as that biased and out to frustrate African states.

Led by the newly appointed Chairman Sunctus Ndegwa, the officials vowed not to let the President leave the country saying they would go to the lengths of rallying Kenyans to petition Uhuru Kenyatta to skip the November trial.

“The President should honour the AU’s spirit of Africanism and shun the summonses. ICC is being used by the Western world to advance political interests,” he said.

He was speaking at the National Chairman’s office Johnson Sakaja where they paid him a courtesy call.

Ndegwa added that as a sitting President, Kenyatta should be given immunity to be charged when his term expires as he has duties to discharge.

He said that the ICC ought to give the country a chance for peace building and reconciliation.
