Kenya from its conception as a country over 5 decades never made it to be a state of right but of law and never achieved to establish democratic and transparent institutions like that of Ghana and some handful African democracies. It has became the main stay of corruption and wanton terrorist act either directly sponsored from international terrorist organizations or from locally sponsored terrorism emanating from its own corrupted rulers. The 2007 election demonstrated the disruption of the country from its existence as electoral democracy in Africa. It is rather transformed from corrupted state to a Sicilian type mafia state patrons running the country and working against its own citizens.
The ICC Prosecutor Luis Moreno-Ocampo is preparing to definitively charge against six top officials implicated in election massacre in Kenya 2007 votes.
This is the only just act to set the standard for the nascent democracy in the post colonial Africa. This historical move is in the verge of being blocked by Kenyan Killers using their governmental powers. They have launched a continental diplomatic offensive to win the Africa Union (AU) members supported by the continental dictators to prohibit in International Criminal Court (ICC) from prosecuting six Kenyans responsible in 2007 post-election massacre. This could be done by mass walking out or prohibit ICC in the continent .This is the long time dream of the African killers so they could continue their actions in impunity.
The son of the First most respected President of Kenya Jomo Kenyatta, who gave the country its present name Deputy Prime Minister Uhuru Kenyatta is leading this campaign since he is one the six on the list of the killers. The key adviser President Mwai Kibaki, the head of the civil service Francis Muthaura is also on the list of the accused following Uhuru for the mission against ICC.
The two corrupted, Mr. William Ruto and Mr. Henry Kosgey members the Orange Democratic Movement party of are doing their best to disqualify ICC. Their party was in opposition and won the election making a coalition with President Kibaki’s government with help of the UN.
Inside the MP’s have been working hard to facilitate withdrawal of Kenya from the International Criminal Court (ICC). According Assistant Minister Aden Duale:-
“We have decided to table the Bill as soon as the House reopens next week. The Bill is ready and we have the numbers to make sure it sails through… Parliament was supreme and as soon as the Bill goes through, the country will have no basis of letting her citizens appear at the ICC.”
According to ICC if any local court to take over there must first be established internationally recognized impartial, independence and seriousness tribunal. If not even the country concerned establish its own tribunal like Rwanda, ICC will appoint one like Arusha Tanzania. The Kenyan killers could be judged in Arusha since there is no need one in Nairobi, unless you want of circumvent the Tribunal which is under their control. They do not need to make one they have already many local corrupted their own banana courts.
