NAIROBI, Kenya, Dec 10 – Deputy President William Ruto’s Defense Lawyer Karim Khan on Wednesday played a video recording at the International Criminal Court (ICC) in which human rights activist Ken Wafula vowed that President Uhuru Kenyatta and Ruto will be jailed by the court.
In the video recording, Wafula is heard telling a Coalition for Reforms and Democracy (CORD) rally that the cases facing the president and his deputy will see them get a jail sentence.
“I would like to send a report to The Hague those cases are going on well and soon people will go to the prison. One should not be lied to that the case has collapsed, people are going to the cell there in the Hague. Let us unite as Kenyans to ensure we remove this government,” he said.
Wafula who spoke confidently about the case against Ruto and Sang seemed to pride himself over allegations that he was among the individuals who were ‘fixing’ the Kenyan cases.
He urged people attending the CORD rally to ensure that they unite to kick out Kenyatta’s Jubilee Government which he accused of failing to deliver.
“I am Ken Wafula. I’m the one you hear Ruto and Uhuru Kenyatta crying about – that I took them to the ICC. We as the people in civil society and NGOs in Kenya we join hands this Saba Day in the National Dialogue. The government of Kenyatta has been unable to do the job. The earlier we send them home the better for all of us,” Wafula said in the video.
He referred to the government as one that had reduced itself to a ‘body of nitwits’ hence it was the time for it to be ejected out.
The prosecution was however, opposed to accepting the video as evidence when Trial Attorney Lucio Garcia asked of its relevance during the cross examination of the 27th witness.
Khan explained that Wafula’s sentiments and decision to use the ICC cases to arouse the crowd was questionable before he requested for a private session.
