ICC Verdict
January 23, 2012, 14:45

To follow up on my last post:

The ICC has come to a decision on the fate of the “Ocampo Six.”

The charges against Uhuru Kenyatta, William Ruto, Francis Muthaura, and Joshua Arap Sang have been confirmed. Charges against Hussein Ali and Henry Kosgey have been dropped.

Ethnically speaking, this means that the court is holding responsible two Kikuyus (Kenyatta and Muthaura) and two Kalenjins (Ruto and Sang).

Politically speaking, it means that both potential presidential candidates — Kenyatta and Ruto — will be tried.

The consequences of this decision remain to be seen. Right now, both the Daily Nation and ICC websites have crashed.
