DEPUTY President William Ruto will tomorrow travel back to The Hague for his trial.
He is charged with crimes against humanity in the 2007-08 post-election violence.
According to his spokesman, David Mugonyi, Ruto will be traveling tomorrow after attending the inter-denomination prayers over the Westgate Mall terror attack.
Ruto and journalist Joshua Sang's case at the International Criminal Court was adjourned to enable the Deputy President travel back to Kenya after the Westgate attack.
The trial will resume with the testimony of witness 536 who was a victim of the Kiambaa church arson on January 1, 2008.
The arson claimed 35 lives.
The judges have already ruled that witness 536, who has expressed fears for her life and family members, will be giving her testimony in camera.
When the trial resumes on Wednesday, the witness is expected to be cross-examined by Ruto and Sang lawyers who had expressed their intention to discredit her testimony in public.
The trial will run until September 11.
The judges are scheduled to make a new programme for the trial because initially, September 5 to September 11 was supposed to be a break.
Last week, Presiding Judge Chile Eboe-Osuji said that following the break last week, there will be need to adjust the schedule.
He said the schedule will be communicated in due course.
The Appeals Chamber is also expected to make a ruling on the prosecution's challenge to a decision by the trial judges allowing Ruto to skip some of the sessions.
