No more hypothesis. Deputy President William Ruto has sensationally claimed after being illegally released from the Hague that the West Gate Mall attack was pre-arranged to coincide with their absence from the country.
Last week, the president had claimed the two of them cannot be out of the country at the same time due to a potential ‘power vacuum’. The sad thing is, Uhuru and Ruto are international murder criminals whom the ICC may find guilty and jail for years. What then happens?
In the speech by the deputy president, we highlight certain claims he is making which Kenyans should not take lightly. Is Ruto planning to evade justice? As for president Kenyatta, all indications are that he will not step at the ICC.
Last weekend, a senior statehouse source currently underground after allegations that the ICC has given to interpol a sealed warrant of arrest after revealing the name of a witness said it is a gone conclusion that his boss will NOT go to the ICC.
“You CORD bloggers get ready for a ride, Boss is not going anywhere,” well I agreed because this is a credible source. But now that he is also underground, the country should get ready for hard times ahead when ‘his boss’ defies the ICC and an open arrest warrant is issued.
Here is Ruto’s Message:
“Its really unfortunate that these terrorists attack was timed to coincide with my presence here at the Hague and the visit by His Excellency the president of Kenya to New York for the UN general Assembly. Meaning that both the president and myself would not have been in the country. It is also instructive to note that the president skipped a meeting last week on the 16th in Brussels that was meant to discuss the Somali crisis complete with the threats it poses to the security situation in Kenya in the horn of Africa and generally in the region,the president had to skip that because he was unable to attend because am required to continuously attend court here at the Hague. It is also important to note that because of the Somali problem that Kenya is engaged in, That these terrorists have been wedged on Kenya .We hope that some people will begin to contextualize what is going on and beginÂ to appreciate the challenges that Kenya is going through,the region is going through,and the complications that are brought by what is going on here. We believe in justice,we believe in fair play and we have as a country,both the president and myself as individuals,we’ve committed ourselves to be present here in court so that we can clear our names but we have to counter balance our individual responsibilities or responsibilities as individuals and legitimate constitutional requirements by 40 million Kenyans.I will be home hopefully this evening to participate in my capacity as deputy president in managing the situation at home and hopefully we should be able to bring this to a close in the shortest time possible to alleviate any further suffering and to put our country on the safe path” .
Ruto still believes that he is being fixed. BUT by who?
