Choices, AND CONSEQUENCES

Posted by john ambuli on Wednesday, February 5, 2014, In : OPINION 
Choices, AND CONSEQUENCES: The ICC prosecutor was clear that the Kenyan state, headed by the accused was pursuing a policy of obstruction, non compliance and hyped high power diplomatic attacks against the court. In my reading of this, the statement is clear: there is no difference between the state and the accused. I smell sanctions...
When I warned that Uhuru was bad for this country, some dunderheads dismissed my arguments. I'd like to hear them comment on this...

 By Jacktone Ambuka.

President Uhuru Kenyatta and his Deputy William Ruto pleaded with the country to pray for them as they embark on the most traumatizing days of their lives. Both are preparing to fly to The Hague to be held accountable for crimes against humanity at the International Criminal Court (ICC). The key word from their speeches that struck me was need for “Prayer.” We all need prayers, don’t we? We pray for faith when we are in doubt. We pray for comfort when we are...

 By Jacktone Ambuka.

1. President Uhuru and his Deputy Ruto will have sleepless nights and restless days. Their judgment, social life and ability to function in their offices will be impaired by fear of how ICC will react.

2. ICC may categorize Uhuru and Ruto as “hostile” suspects and may consider imposing “sealed” warrants of arrest.

3. The parliament emboldened ICC’s definition of Uhuru and Ruto as mobilizers who fit the description of crimes they are accused of.

4. The f...
