DP Ruto Receives Bad News As His Name Is Taken Back To ICC. Here Is Why

Just when things were cooling down, Deputy President William Ruto's name has once again been dragged back to the International Criminal Court (ICC). This happened during the final seating of Paul Gicheru, the lawyer who is facing charges for allegedly interfering with witnesses in Ruto and Journalist Joshua Sang Case.

During the final seating that lasted an hour and led by Anton Steinberg, Gicheru was charged with 8 counts of witness interference. During the Prosecution, Ruto's name featured prominently as the Prosecution claimed that he was the main beneficiary of the witness interference by Gicheru.

“The prosecution’s evidence, if accepted by the Chamber, clearly establishes that the accused is guilty of all charges ... It proves beyond reasonable doubt the accused’s essential role in the implementation of the witness interference scheme, which was conducted for the benefit of William Samoei Ruto,” Steinberg said.

The Prosecution said that they have provided enough evidence to proof that Gicheru is guilty and should be charged. 8 witnesses have so far appeared in court to testify that Gicheru was involved in witness interference.
