(THE STAR) An MP has asked Kenyans to support President Uhuru Kenyatta and Deputy President William Ruto. Leader of Majority in the National Assembly Aden Duale said Kenyans should hold prayer rallies when Uhuru and Ruto attend their ICC hearings.

He said he will table a motion to remove Kenya from the Rome Statute. “We want Uhuru and Ruto to deal with the Hague through the legal process and we as leaders here we will deal with the ICC and Rome Statute through a political process,” Duale said. He was speaking on Sunday at Kirigiti Stadium in Kiambu during a prayer rally for Uhuru and Ruto.

More than 13 leaders attended. They asked citizens to support the removal of Kenya from the Rome Statute. The leaders said this will avoid leaders being humiliated in the future. They said the move will support Kenya’s judicial system. Kiambu Senator Kimani Wamatangi said it is shameful for democratically-elected leaders to be humiliated by the ICC.

He said the US does not believe in the Rome Statute and yet African countries are humiliated by it. Wamatangi said it is time to change the situation and prosecute Kenyans in Kenya. He said Kenyans knew about the ICC cases but still voted for Uhuru and Ruto. “Kenyans heard the careless talk of choices have consequences and essential contacts but still proceeded to vote for the dynamic duo because they believed in them. Those claiming that the Jubilee government cannot last for more than two years have post-election hangovers,” Wamatangi said.

Duale said Cord leaders are misleading Kenyans. He asked governors allied to Jubilee not to support the referendum. “We, in Jubilee, will not allow a referendum. I want to tell Raila Odinga that he cannot bring different types of governance for his own interests,” Duale said.
