We will overcome the ICC challenge, President Uhuru Kenyatta tells Kenyans

By PSCU | Oct 4th 2014 | 2 min read

NYANDARUA, KENYA: President Uhuru Kenyatta has urged Kenyans to be calm and not to worry about the challenges facing him and Deputy President William Ruto at the International Criminal Court.

The President said the cases will be over and that they will prevail to continue serving Kenyans.

“You don’t need to worry about this other issue you are hearing about because it will be over and we will overcome it,” said the President, who was responding to comments made by other leaders who spoke before him at a Church function in Nyandarua County.

Senator Kipchumba Murkomen, who was among the speakers, said the trials President Kenyatta and his deputy have been going through will only make them stronger to serve Kenyans.

“The Bible says when you go through hardships you will come out strong and more refined. I am sure after this case you will be more refined,” said the Senator.

Archbishop Eliud Wabukala of the Anglican Church of Kenya assured the President of the support and prayers of all faithful.

“We continue praying for you on the challenge you are facing and we know God will see you through,” he said.

Nyandarua Senator Muriuki Karue said, “We are praying for you on the Hague issue. In all this we know you will win and people will come to remember you as a strong leader.”

The President at the same time castigated politicians whose actions are out to derail the development and progress of the nation.

“We don’t want noise.Those who were defeated should leave us to work,” he said.

The President also challenged the current crop of leaders to emulate those before them who showed selfless commitment to building the nation.

He scolded politicians who seek positions of leadership to enrich themselves rather than being motivated by improving livelihoods of Kenyans.
