Kenya: DP Ruto Says He Will Be Vindicated at ICC

Deputy President William Ruto yesterday expressed confidence that he will be vindicated in the case against him at the International Criminal Court.

Ruto's trial and that of his co-accused, radio presenter Joshua Sang is set to resume today at the Hague.

Speaking during a service at the Deliverance Church in Umoja, Nairobi, the Deputy President said the prayers of Kenyans of all religious affiliation in connection with the case at the Hague will be answered.

Ruto also renewed the government's appeal to Kenyans to help security agencies to keep peace and security, saying the responsibility of ensuring security prevailed in the country was the government's as much as the citizens

"We should be our brothers keepers, know your neighbours so that we can keep this country safe." And added, "The government will continue to recruit more security officers and equip them well, but you as Kenyans also have a responsibility in assisting security agents to smoke out the bad elements in our society." Ruto said

He said the country was headed for a great future stating that God had given its leaders grace and wisdom to provide the required leadership to take the country forward.
