Kenya: Ruto and Sang Status Coneference in Session

The pre-trial hearing for William Ruto and Joshua Sang has started.

The hearing for their co-accused Uhuru Kenyatta and Francis Muthaura was held earlier today. Joshua Sang is at the status conference having flown to The Hague last week with Francis Muthaura.

Uhuru Kenyatta and William Ruto opted to attend the pre-trial hearing through video-link instead of traveling to The Hague in order to allow them to campaign for Kenyatta's presidency bid.

The four are accused of fueling the violence that rocked Kenya after the 2007 General Elections. Two of the suspects Uhuru Kenyatta and William Ruto are running together on a presidential ticket in the March 4 elections. Ruto, as Uhuru's running mate is expected to attend a deputy president debate scheduled for 7pm today.
