They saw it coming only that The Hague is not Kenya best known for legal laundering under serial fake constitutional references. Now that the ICC Appeal Chamber has thrown out the Ocampo4's appeal, the impending full trial wouldn't have come at bad political time.
It appears the gods refused to hear the prayers. But again you only mock God at the risk of incurring his royal wrath. Playing cheap politics may be fashionable locally but it is very expensive exporting that vice abroad.
The Ocampo4 should demand refund from their defence lawyers. Instead on focusing on law, the so-called learned friends joined the gravy train of playing politics with ICC minting strange conspiracy theories.
This ICC alley cat will definitely drag home very unpleasant skunk. Kibaki is not sitting pretty knowing that this time next year he may be a guest in very hostile cubicles far away from Othaya.
Well, we haven't heard nor seen the last head of this ICC hydra. Game on.
