Nairobi - Daily Nation reports that former UN secretary - general Kofi Annan has urged Kenyans not to elect politicians who have been indicted by the International Criminal Court in the upcoming General Elections.
Though he did not mention Deputy Prime Minister Uhuru Kenyatta and Eldoret North MP William Ruto, the former chief mediator told the media that electing such leaders will sour Kenya’s relations with the international community.
Even as they prepare to stand trial at The Hague over cases facing them and two other Kenyans in April next year, Kenyatta and Ruto have declared that it was their right to bid for the top seat.
