Before the August elections, RUTO closely monitors the development of a new ICC case as RIGATHI GACHAGUA seeks assistance there.


Rigathi Gachagua, the running partner of Deputy President William Ruto, has turned to the International Criminal Court (ICC) for assistance.

Speaking yesterday in Kerugoya, Gachagua called for a court in The Hague to keep an eye on countrywide activities leading up to the elections on August 9.

He said he wanted Interior Principal Secretary Karanja Kibicho to be on the ICC prosecutor’s radar.

He said that Kibicho was attempting to thwart Deputy President William Ruto’s vote by stirring communities in the Rift Valley against one another.

“Kibicho wants to incite violence in the Rift Valley, so we want to ask the ICC prosecutor to keep a close eye on him. We won’t return to our situation from 2007.

Gachagua reaffirmed, “The peace that was brokered by Ruto and President Uhuru will continue to prevail once the DP and I take government.

The Mathira lawmaker said that the PS and the National Intelligence Service had devised a scheme to lower the UDA vote in the area.

I want to let you know that we are putting you on notice, you are a prospective visitor to the ICC, he continued, adding that you want to burn down the homes of our people so that they return home out of terror.

Gachagua stated that Kibicho was employing local chiefs to campaign for Raila Odinga of the Azimio party, but he urged him to resign without stirring up trouble in his neighborhood.

His remarks follow Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i’s denial of allegations that officials working for his Ministry were responsible for the divisive flyers spreading in the Rift Valley.
