Kericho senator Charles Keter has challenged the former ICC prosecutor Louis Moreno Ocampo to move ahead and name all the envoys that he alleged pushed him to indict President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto at The Hague.

Keter said since it was now clear that he 'fixed' the two leaders it was high time for him to further reveal the Kenyan 'enemies' and also state what his motives on the two leaders saying as an international prosecutor it was totally wrong for him to be swayed.

Speaking at Ndanai in Sotik at a function presided by the deputy president , senator Keter said it was clear that there was no evidence to sustain the cases affecting two leaders hence it was in the best interest for the current prosecutor to terminate the cases.

"We now know that some foreign powers influenced the outcome of the prosecution lies and we demand that Bensouda clear all the cases facing Kenyans at The Hague. She (Bensouda) has nothing to charge the Kenyans on," he said

Keter said it was wrong for an international court with had been dubbed the court of justice to be used by the super power countries to drive their malicious agendas by tainting the images of some leaders in a country.

"This court is being used by some countries to eliminate the individuals they do not want in a country; it is now evident," Keter note.

He said there were no substantive evidences to sustain the prosecutor's claims that he and the president took part in the 2007 humanity atrocities that hit the country hence the need to terminate them.
