Cord leader Raila Odinga has congratulated President Uhuru Kenyatta following a decision by ICC Prosecutor Fatou Bensouda to withdraw the charges against him at the International Criminal Court.
Raila said the President’s personal triumph is also of great significance to the country.
“It is my hope that with this burden taken away, my brother, President Uhuru Kenyatta will now focus all his energies and attention on serving the people of Kenya to the best of his ability. I wish him well in this noble task.” Raila said.
Cord co-principal, Bungoma Senator Moses Wetang’ula also congratulated Uhuru saying that this will now give the President ample time to execute his duties without dividing the nation.
Wetang’ula also wished Deputy President Willima Ruto and his co-accused journalist Joshua Arap Sang all the best in their cases. He said he hoped that they will also receive fair judgement and be set free to discharge their duties in the country.
