Ruto on his way home from The Hague

, NAIROBI, Kenya, Nov 7 – Suspended Higher Education Minister William Ruto is expected back in the country on Monday morning from The Hague.

Mr Ruto endured a three day marathon questioning session with International Criminal Court (ICC) Prosecutor Luis Moreno Ocampo and his team.

"He is expected at the JKIA at around 6am tomorrow morning from Dubai," a close ally of the Eldoret North MP said.

Mr Ruto left the country on Wednesday.

Belgut MP Charles Keter accompanied his Eldoret North counterpart to The Hague together with his two lawyers Katwa Kigen and Dr Kithure Kindiki.

He is understood to have requested for the meeting to record a statement with the ICC, which is investigating the violence that broke out after the disputed 2007 general election.

"I asked for an appointment with Ocampo and his group so that we can set the record straight and get to the truth," he told journalists shortly before his departure on Wednesday night.

Last month Mr Ocampo revealed that a high ranking politician had written to him expressing willingness to appear voluntarily before the ICC and Mr Ruto confirmed he was the one.

On Thursday, two Cabinet Ministers were said to be planning to travel to The Hague to hold similar meetings with Mr Ocampo.

They are believed to be individuals who Mr Ocampo wrote to asking them to give any information they have about the 2008 post election violence in Kenya.
