Movie Premiere: Uhuru Scare ICC, Muthaura Free
Poor ICC chief prosecutor has been hit in the face with by full force of raw power. Even before President-Elect Uhuru Kenyatta recovered from his victory celebrations Fatour Bensouda has thrown in the towel by dropping charges against Mr Muthaura. Her reasons for acquitting Muthaura betray her fears of the new president. The excuse that several people who may have provided important evidence have died is a real excuse walking on stilts. Add that to Fatou's claim that other witnesses are too afraid to testify for the prosecution. If they were afraid before last week then they will be PETRIFIED with Jomo Junior as the CEO calling the shots from the seat his dad used to occupy while flogging ministers Game changer Desperate Bensouda laments about being disappointed by Kenya's government failure to provide her with important evidence. That must be superlative naivety to expect a convict to shoot himself in booth feet. Just like that Turbo farmer Muteshi forgetting suing the CRYING-WITH-JOY Deputy President William Ruto over a mere 100 acres of land, ICC must forget entertaining the lie that Uhuru can facilitate access to witnesses. The key witness Kabutu made his corn and relocated. The same guy was central to Uhuru's indictment so game over. All that whining about witness number 4 recanting his evidence and admitting taking bribes is academics meant for researchers. Oh and what a fat empty threat by Fatou's threat that dropping Muthaura's case today is based only on the specific facts of the case against Mr Muthaura, and not on any other consideration. Damn the west, they can go hung collectively and separately. China will dutifully fill the void. Kenyans made their choice and are ready to lie on the bed they made.
