Khan further claimed that the witness was inconsistent in his evidence if it was Ruto who would repeat derogatory words after Kosgey or the other way round.

In another statement, Khan said the witness alleged that a different politician from Ruto repeated the words at Kapchorwa Stadium yet during the trial he told the court that it was Ruto who repeated the inciting words after Kosgey.

“You have changed things around. This time you suddenly say it was Ruto speaking last …you changed the story witness. In the victim application you said it was Daniel arap Moi repeating them and it was not Ruto,” Khan told the witness who differed with his position.

Khan tasked the witness to tell the court if the ICC was giving him any form of aid and after the witness denied, Khan requested for a private session.

Earlier, the 12th witness told the court that he understands the term madoadoa was used to urge Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) supporters to vote for the party in the so-called ‘three-piece-suit’ meaning vote for ODM councillor, MP and President.

Khan played two video clips in which former Prime Minister Raila Odinga told people not to vote madoadoa (spots), a message meant not to spoil the voting pattern and instead vote uniformly.

The witness had told the court that Ruto used the term madoadoa to ask Kalenjins to evict other communities (spots) from the Rift Valley.
