ICC Witness testifies against DP William Ruto in his absence
27th November, 2014
A witness whose testimony was used to confirm the case against deputy president William Ruto took to the stand at the international criminal court in the Hague today. The witness told the court that deputy president William Ruto and former Cabinet Minister Henry Kosgey told a crowd that if elections were rigged there would be consequences. He told the court that demonstrations were held in Eldoret on the 26th of December 2007 over alleged fake ballot papers being ferried by two buses to the town. The witness gave his testimony in the presence of deputy president William Ruto after the court ordered that he should be physically present. Ruto who has been excused by the court from daily attendance of his trial is required to be physically present in court during the first five first days of a new session or when ordered to do so by the court.
