Did prayers help SIX Kenyans who were facing crimes against humanity at The Hague?

I believe many of you would say, yes! And equally many of you would say, nope! Now it is time to have a say how prayers did a wonderful things that resulted into the acquittal of all six Kenyans from the chains of an International Criminal Court (ICC).

This is how it went down,

Kenyans knows that their deputy president is a man who loves God so much that his tears are almost in constant motion whenever he feels an angel touching his head. He was the first person to visit the ICC at The Hague, Holland and came back as a hero. If Kenyans can remember that day very well, then they do still remember his words upon touching down from the plane. Mr Ruto said, “God who stays in heaven will never let the innocent person suffer… I believe he will show us the light, and we will follow it until the end.”

That was beautiful and powerful statement that Kenyans never understood then, but as time went by things became much clear.

The first four accused fellows were exonerated from blame since the prosecution failed to produce evidence to confirm that any of them were part of the financial team that funded the killings witnessed in 2007/2008.

That was great because this paved way for the last two to have a say that later confirmed that, them too, did not have a case to answer.

How prayers helped the six….

Although there is no verse in the Bible that says, “God helps those who help themselves.” Majority of us believe that God is there to add a little help to those who are already struggling to be free. Indeed, it happened in Kenya during those days. How?

According to the ICC prosecutor, ICC witnesses faced the worst challenges and never should any witness face such grave challenges in future.

She said that, many witnesses were forced, either by bribe or by death, to change their earlier statements. It also appeared that those who were the key witnesses were either denied a chance to speak out or were killed before the beginning of the trials.

Well, if you think prayers did not work then think again… The six are free, two of them are our leaders (leaders are chosen by God)… what do you think about this?

ICC Issue in Kenya

Today at about 6P.M in the evening, we will get to know the decision reached by the prosecutor concerning the cases of the deputy president and the former radio presenter. They are both facing charges for crimes against humanity during the Post-Election Violence (PEV).The issue here is whether withdrawn testimonies that were initially used against the accused will still be used as evidence against the cases before the ICC. This is so because some witnesses claimed to have lied or were forced to testify or like the case of a witness who went missing never to be seen again.

A lot have been happening now that Kenya has individuals with cases before this court and we have seen the president of this country lobbying African countries to withdraw from the Rome Statute. The popular Rule 68 was amended in 2013 by member countries of the ICC. By weighing the options here, in case the judges say that the law should not be used then the defense team of the D.P can challenge that the case facing him be terminated. But then if the judges decide that the case go on as it is, then this means the accused will be forced to put in order their team for defending them.

Politically, this case is affecting the D.P and so whatever the court decided means a lot to him. So if the court decides that the evidence cannot be used, then this means that this case is collapsing and it may mean that there is no case to answer. But then if the case is continued in accordance to this law, then it means that this case my take long most likely beyond 2017 because from the look of things the case has not yet kicked off.

So we are waiting to see what will be ruling will be.
