Forget about April 7. Now the D-Day is April 8. Ocampo is no fool to crowd a day designated for his prized catch. While Ruto and Koskei will appear before ICC Judges on the morning of April 7 to confirm the charges against them, Muthaura and Uhuru have been reallocated a new date/day to enable Ocampo sufficient time to execute his plans to detain them on account stopping them from interfering with police, investigations and witnesses in the course of their official duties.
Make no mistake, President Kibaki is no fool as WikiLeaks revealed the other day. HE knows too well who prosecutor Luis-Moreno Ocampo has on his radar. And when push comes to a shove Mzee Muthaura has already made it known about his dismay at being left holding the can of worms. The next natural course of action will see him letting the worms slither. Well, a few more TRADITIONAL mysterious deaths in the near future is not fat-fetched.
All the war drum gimmicks will be served the contempt card they duly deserve. The hydra that is Kenya's impunity has exhausted all orifices to sprout ahead. And Moreno knows it that is why he is waging both media and legal wars to prepare both suspects and their gullible apologists for the dark political/legal future lurking ahead.
Diner with the devil
Now our patriotic leaders are shamelessly peddling the cheap and laughable theory that local political parties have extended their influence from ICC to the UN. Looking at all the motions and charades to defeat justice, one need not be a nuclear physicists to imagine what a local tribunal would be mandated to do. You have to excuse the regime apologists for supporting the hitherto poisoned judicial appointments.
We invited the devil for dinner and he must be ready to sup with our guest now that he is promptly seated. Like him, hate him, Ocampo has the ruling class by the balls. No amount of posturing or bravado will loosen the grip. Hardly 1000 days after collectively raping a country and her voters, the incalculable bill of that national fraud is just beginning to stream in threatening to blow up the calculators.
While we live beautiful national coloured lies always prefaced in denial and acute selective amnesia, the internationals community which saved from ourselves are knocking for their pound of flesh. No amount of threats will have them buy our twin vices of deceit and fraud. We made the bed and must brace ourselves for the eventful sleep.
