Video: I will not quit as deputy PM-Uhuru

A defiant Deputy Prime Minister Uhuru Kenyatta on Saturday said he would not resign over the charges of crimes against humanity that he faces at the International Criminal Court.
Speaking during a public meeting at the Ruiru stadium in his Kiambu county backyard, Mr Kenyatta said he would only relinquish the post if Parliament decides his fate through a motion.

“I will not step down as deputy prime minister unless a  motion of no confidence is taken to Parliament and MPs approve it. The law must be followed,” he said amid applause from the large crowd attending the event.

The prayer meeting was organised for the four Kenyans whose charges were last week committed to full trial at The Hague-based court.


Mr Kenyatta was accompanied by more than 50 MPs at the meeting.

Also present was Eldoret North MP William Ruto and radio presenter Joshua Sang ,with whom Mr Kenyatta has been indicted by the ICC over the post-election violence.

The other is Mr Francis Muthaura, who resigned as head of the public service last Thursday.
