#Ocampo6 Now #Ocampo4

So, the ICC finally confirmed charges on 4 of the Ocampo 6.

The four confirmed were:
1. Francis Muthaura
2. Uhuru Kenyatta
3. William Ruto
4. Joshua Arap Sang

Now, to be clear; they aren’t guilty yet. Just going to continue with further trials and such. The only surprise there for me is Uhuru. Pretty sure he’d have been free seeing as palms were presumably gratuitously greased.

Anyhow, thoughts?

  1. Question: Are Ruto and Kenyatta STILL going to hold on to their presidential elections? Because as much as they haven’t been found guilty (yet), the implication this ruling will have on the majority of Kenyans will be… interesting, to say the least.

    Anyway, I’m a bit surprised they weren’t all confirmed. Though Ocampo’s three and a half men is breeding ground for many, many mocking tweets over the next few days.

  2. Well, I guess the Uhuru decision was the big one, given the way Ocampo’s strategy during the confirmation hearings seemed to be on the verge of crumbling … Overall, the confirmation hearings themselves were a bit lacklustre. I expected a fierier brand of evidence than just newspaper cuttings and rumours about folks’ wealth… I don’t expect any less this time either. Kazi kwako, Mr. Ocampo!

  3. I actually feel sorry Uhuru. The evidence against him seemed soo flimsy. Actually, I was secretely and maybe unrealistically hoping that they would all be let go and fresh investigations started. I can’t shake the feeling that there are those with bloodier hands who are walking around with a secret mona lisa smile on there face and that truelly makes me sad. People, I need a villain, someone with so much irrefutable evidence stacked against him that I can sigh and say for once justice is done in Kenya – Ocampo hasn’t given me that, he’s given me scapegoats.

  4. There is an issue of the evidence that was adduced in camera. We can’t afford to ignore that. Beyond that, NSIS report stated that Uhuru met with Mungiki at StateHouse and this means that it way have well been the most deciding factor in this issue in that NSIS is a gvt intelligence agency.

    Anyhow, that is now water under the bridge. In today’s Sunday Nation, Ahednassir Abdullahi tells Uhuru thus: “…Uhuru should sit out of the 2012 or 2013 presidential election. This is a painful thing to do, but he must do it. This he must do for himself, his family and for Kenya…” I couldn’t agree more.
