Emotions run high as family and friends attend Lawyer Paul Gicheru's memorial service

5th October, 2022

Lawyer Paul Gicheru, who died in Nairobi Monday evening was facing six counts of bribery and corruptly inducing witnesses to interfere with justice in a case against President William Ruto and journalist Joshua Arap Sang that was dismissed in 2016.

He was facing a 30-year jail term should he be found guilty of the charges.

This was after the ICC Pre-Trial Chamber A on 15 July 2021, confirmed the charges of offences against the administration of justice brought by the Prosecutor and committed him to trial. 

The ICC accused Gicheru of playing a key role in a scheme to influence witnesses. 

Ruto and his co-accused Sang were both charged with instigating ethnic violence after the disputed 2007 election in which more than 1,000 people died and hundreds of thousands were displaced.
