Nairobi, KENYA: Deputy President William Ruto on Friday insisted that his ICC Case was dropped since he was entirely innocent and not because of any cases of alleged interference.
“I have seen people assign all manner of excuses to the collapse of this case.This case collapsed because we had nothing to do with the Post-Election Violence. I did not attend any meeting that orchestrated the skirmishes,” he said.
Ruto also pointed a finger to his enemies for involving him with the case that gave him 6 years of sleepless nights.
“As for those who colluded and conspired to manufacture and fabricate a false narrative and went ahead to hire, bribe and coach witnesses I pray for them to come to terms with their evil act,” added Ruto.
He added that PEV Victims have been promised to be attended to by the Government and also called for peaceful co-existence.
“The victims have shown courage during this trying time however we must work together in uniting and healing the nation, “noted the Deputy President.
Ruto added that the people of Africa demonstrated unwavering solidarity with the people and Government of Kenya.
“Their support throughout the duration of the cases is appreciated. The African Union has greatly contributed to the continent’s unity and solidarity as we searched for justice,” Explained Ruto.
“I pay tribute to my family, legal team and my friend President Uhuru Kenyatta. Their support cannot even be expressed in monetary terms,” concluded the Deputy President.
