Mwingi, Kenya: Former Vice President Kalonzo Musyoka has described as a dangerous trend attempts by President Uhuru Kenyatta’s administration to push for immunity from prosecution for heads of state.
Mr Musyoka said that the county was headed for economic and political consequences should the Government succeed in lobbying the 122 members in the Rome Statute to amend the statutory requirement by the International Criminal Court.
The former VP said the Government was ill-advised as the end result would impact negatively on Kenya’s economic and political affluence with the world.
The Wiper Democratic Movement leader spoke at Kimangao Location in Kyuso District, Mwingi North Constituency during the burial of mzee Robert Maluki Ng’ang’a (89).
“Our diplomatic image out there is in bad shape. Kenyas’ international relationship with donor agencies is at stake with the agitation by the current leadership to be granted exception from ICC prosecution,” lamented Kalonzo.
