, NAIROBI, Kenya, Oct 9 – President Uhuru Kenyatta is back in the country after attending the International Criminal Court status conference as a private citizen.
On arrival, the Head of State was welcomed by his deputy William Ruto.
He then held a meeting at the presidential pavilion where he received a brief about events during his absence.
President Kenyatta resumed his official duties on Wednesday evening after the legal instrument appointing Ruto as Acting President expired at 6pm.
Kenyans were out in large numbers to welcome the President whose procession was expected pass through Outering Road, Jogoo Road, Landhies Road and Haile Selassie Avenue through to Harambee House.
During the status conference, Kenyatta did not make any statement in court where he was represented by his lawyers who urged the judges to terminate the case due to lack of evidence.
He only addressed dozens of Kenyans living abroad and MPs outside the court where he exuded confidence of winning the legal battle.
President Kenyatta, on Monday, said he would not subject the sovereignty of Kenya to any other jurisdiction on account of his attendance of the ICC status conference.
He invoked Article 147(3) of the Constitution, and appointed the Deputy President as Acting President while he attended the status conference at The Hague, in the Netherlands.
