ICC Witness Meshack Yebei was laid to rest in a sombre event boycotted by politicians of Uasin Gishu including Deputy President William Ruto.
Ruto’s lawyer Kharim Khan sensationally claimed at the ICC that Yebei was their witness. Yebei was initially a prosecution witness before he jumped to the defence side.
Mourners at the funeral pointed accusing finger at the government, with parents wondering why he was transported to Voi’s Tsavo wildlife park despite all indications that he was killed in or around Uasin Gishu.
The family also claim an eye witness has come forward to reveal that he saw Yebei being killed around Ziwa and his body bundled in a vehicle, then moved away in a convoy of three vehicles.
On December 28, Yebei was abducted while buying water to his sick child whom they (together with wife) had takenÂ to hospital Â and his body found in February 20 at Tsavo. Another body found in River Yala had been misidentified to be his until another family claimed to it.
