The name of Deputy President William Ruto has been mentioned widely in the last few days of court hearings at the ICC in the Netherlands where Ruto's former lawyer Paul Gicheru is facing charges of coaxing prosecution witnesses to stop cooperating with the International Criminal Court. 

He is said to have been used by the Deputy President to give huge sums of money in bribes to the witnesses in order to collapse the case against Ruto. 

According to court papers seen by the star, Gicheru and his team first approached witness P0397 who wanted to be given Sh10 million as a bribe. They were able to negotiate the amount down to Sh5 million and both parties agreed payments in installments. 

However, Gicheru only gave the witness Ksh 1 Million and disappeared with the four million. Another witness, P0613 was promised Sh5 million and told to keep the cash under her mattress. She, however, refused to cooperate with Gicheru's team. 

Meanwhile, share with us your thoughts on the matter kindly.
