Senior Counsel Ahmednasir Abdullahi, through a tweet, has said the Deputy President William Ruto can be charged with murder in the court of law over the statement made in Nakuru on Sunday.
At the event, DP Ruto stated that the African Union job description fpr Raila Odinga did not include prospecting minerals.
According to Ahmednassir, this qualifies as malice aforethought in law which law dictionary defines as ” the conscious intent to cause death or great bodily harm to another person before a person commits the crime.
DP RUTO is simply too BRUTAL..in law he can be charged with MURDER for his statement satisfies the legal prerequisite to commit MURDER…which in law is called "MALICE AFORETHOUGHT" https://t.co/Wo25PXNnp6

He was replying to Dennis Itumbi video about what the DP said while in a church in Nakuru county.
In the video, DP Ruto says they never negotiated a deal with AU for the former Prime Minister to be involved in prospecting minerals or any gold merchandise.
“The deal we negotiated for Raila Odinga as AU Infrastructure representative did not include prospecting and sale of minerals,” the DP said.
