Starting today was when the Deputy President (DP) was scheduled to appeal against the case implicating him of crimes against humanity withdrawn, claiming absence of credible evidence really making him guilty. But then several governors, senators and Members of Parliament (MPs) had travelled hundreds of kilometers to show support for the DP in The Hague. Now that our dear politicians were showing solidarity to the accused DP, what about the victims; who is there for them?
Listening to a number of politicians who were interviewed airing their views, it was obvious PEV aftermath victims were out of the whole picture yet they bore the wrath of the disputed elections.
The politicians have always said that they have the Kenyans at heart but I only think they are there for the individualistic characteristic of the unfair political arena.
For someone to say that this court is not of the required standard for justice to prevail, one wonders whether they have an alternative court that can definitely pass their meaning of standards.
Another politician went ahead and compared the proceedings that this court has been behaving like those minor cases that are taken to a local chief. But I think that they ought to know better that with the power vested on this international court, its systems are well laid to deal with crimes that human rights are infringed.
Even as they say that those in charge of this court are only there to protect their salaried jobs, the best thing that they can do is to wait for the outcome of the appeal.
This court deserves to be respected and I know Kenyans are confident that no matter the hurdles that have been experienced since the case was opened, a fair judgment will still come to pass. The best thing so far is that no amount of political manipulations can interfere with the final decision of this court.
