ICC: Kenyan suspects attend first day of hearings

Eldoret North MP William Ruto, Tinderet MP Henry Kosgey and radio presenter Joshua Sang arrived at the court few minutes before the hearing started.

The three whose fate lies in the outcome of the hearings to be conducted for a period of nine days, arrived about 30 minutes before the hearing time that was set by the court.

A navy blue Mercedes Benz carrying Ruto and radio presenter Joshua Sang pulled behind a Kenyan Embassy van that was carrying Government officers, MPs and family members.

The vehicle was carrying his wife Rachel, Bureti MP Zachayo Cheruiyot and his Belgut counterpart Charles Keter.

"I am ready for the process. How is home" Ruto asked a battery of journalists who had camped outside the ICC building for more than four hours.

Dressed in a navy blue suit, the presidential aspirant walked into the building as his wife followed.

Sang who had entered the building rushed outside saying, "Where is honourable Ruto’s wife She has his passport and it is required."

An official from the embassy ran after her and returned carrying the document to the reception where Ruto and some of his lawyers were waiting.

Kosgey arrived in the company of his son who also acts as his lawyer, moments after the other suspects and their lawyers had gone in.

Sang later addressed journalists and told them his wish was that justice prevails throughout the whole court process.

"I have been on holiday and still on one. At least, I will have time to explain myself before the court. This is not a case that should be brought before this court," he said.
