The magnitude of the electoral fraud case against lawyer Kethi Kilonzo skyrocketed this morning when legal heavyweight and Senior Counsel Fred Ojiambo took over the handling of the case from Julie Soweto.
Ojiambo who refused his client, kethi, to take plea this morning argued that the charge sheet was defective, prompting the sitting to be adjourned to this afternoon when the court is expected to resume.
During the morning session, Kethi was accompanied by top Â CORD leadership with Raila Odinga, Kalonzo Musyoka, Moses Wetangula leading other coalition members to show moral support to Ms Kilonzo, whom they have maintained is being persecuted for ably representing Africog in the Supreme Court petition to overturn the ludicrous election of ICC suspect and Kenya’s president, Uhuru Kenyatta and Deputy William Ruto.
Yesterday, in a party resolution the ICC has dismissed as “inconsequential”, the Jubilee government released a stern statement that Kenya is pulling out of the Rome Statute. Already, both houses of parliament have been recalled to initiate the process which experts now warn will lead to international isolation of the country as the process is meant to defeat the ends of justice.
The lawmakers singled out Africog as part of the civil society groups working in cohort with the ICC to send Uhuru Kenyatta to the gallows despite the fact that post election violence was a movie. Sadly, people died.
