    What a silly idiotic jurisprudence by monari! To call you a learned fellow is an insult to jurisprudence itself. U don’t need to be a lawyer to know the fact that at anytime within any given moment one can bring up a case as long as there is evidence to support it. pre-empting evidence before it is argued is a sign of desparation and fobia.

      Oludavin, urgently request a refund from wherever you went to school. Do it as a matter of urgency.

      Rubbish. Ocampo has to act within the rules of the ICC, not a Kibera court.

    If indeed the cases are confirmed, any trials can only start in 2013, not 2012, given the time it will take to file and hear the appeals. Those who therefore thought that Ocampo would do the dirty work for them and remove Uhuru and Ruto from the ballot next year had better accept reality and think again; there will be no shortcut to State House for Raila. He must defeat his most formidable opponents fairly and squarely in a free and fair contest, not in one determined by Western interests.
    Kenya is not and will never become Ivory Coast no matter how much Obama, Cameron and Sarkozy may wish it.
