President Kibaki has said Kenya has not lost hope of having four of its nationals facing crimes against humanity at the International Criminal Court (ICC) tried at home. He urged Kenyans to remain calm as the government pursues a local mechanism to try Deputy Prime Minister Uhuru Kenyatta, former head of the public service Francis Muthaura, Eldoret North MP William Ruto and radio presenter Joshua arap Sang for crimes committed during the 2007/08 post election violence. He said the victims of the chaos deserved justice while the suspects had a right to a fair hearing. "I am also aware of the concerns that the upcoming ICC cases have caused among Kenyans. I am also cognisant of the fact that this House passed a motion that Kenya pulls out of the ICC. "Victims of post-election violence deserve justice. The Kenyans facing trials also deserve a fair and legal hearing," said President Kibaki during a State of the Nation address in Parliament, Tuesday. "In the meantime, I call on Kenyans to remain calm even as we pursue the option of having a local mechanism to deal with any international crimes. The matter of the ICC must also not be politicised," said the President. The four Kenyans are due to face trial for the chaos that left 1,133 people dead and 650,000 uprooted from their homes at The Hague-based court in the coming months. The ICC took over the cases after the government failed to establish a local tribunal to prosecute the suspects.
