Yesterday’s ICC’s ruling against the two suspects only confirms that the course of justice for the victims of 2007/2008 post election violence that happened in Kenya has taken a mew and very dangerous turn or the whole nation.
We have to celebrate yes! The supporters had their chance to make their final wish come true, but this also made it possible for Kenya’s politics to draw close to the cliff.
The ICC ruling was in favor of the two accused individuals, just because there was no sufficient evidence to proceed with the case. However, it was clear that the case is still open for the interested parties who may decide to provide more evidence against the acquitted fellows.
This means that, those individuals who made it possible for ICC to come out begging for more evidence would want to remain in power for very many years, just to hide evidence from landing into wrong hands.
This brings us to a dead end conclusion; there will never be democracy in Kenya as long as the cases are still open at the ICC.
If it happens that the forces of evil are defeated during the next general elections, then God will have to descend from heaven to calm down anger in people’s mind. It will not be easy to sail through someone has to hide his dirt… and make sure that none could access government secrets that might turn the ICC’s wheel into action.
Some things to think about:
Why did ICC prosecutor complain that Kenya has refused to cooperate?
Why did witnesses have to die if it was clear that the two were wrongly accused in something they did not do?
Why rally the whole Africa to threaten ICC in matters affecting only a few people?
