Nairobi - Daily Nation reports Deputy Prime Minister Uhuru Kenyatta and former Public Service boss Francis Muthaura want their cases at the ICC referred to the pre-trial chamber after the prosecution withdrew evidence of a key witness.
According to Kenyatta’s lawyers Steven Kay QC and Gillian Higgins the evidence given by prosecution witness 4 was not part of what it would rely on during the trial period despite it linking Kenyatta to Mungiki activities.
The prosecution withdrew the evidence after the witness admitted that he lied in his testimonies claiming that he attended two meetings at State House Nairobi and at a private members club, where the alleged atrocities were planned.
