Key Factors That Collapsed Kenya’s Hague Court Case

A report released by the International Criminal Court prosecutor, Fatou Bensouda, has revealed that external factors such as insufficient co-operation from Kenya, witness tampering and interference contributed to the failure of the cases. President Uhuru Kenyatta, Deputy President William Ruto and former journalist Joshua Sang were taken to the Hague court for their alleged involvement in the 2007/8 post-election violence, in which more than 1,300 people were killed and hundreds of thousands displaced.
