Kofi Annan Roasted Over Uhuru, Ruto Remarks

0

Raila,KibakiFormer United Nations Secretary-General Kofi Annanhas annoyed a section of Kenyans after he claimed that the International Criminal Court (ICC) made a mistake letting President Uhuru Kenyatta and his Deputy William Ruto go free.

In an article published by the UK-based Financial Times, Annan claims the court did not do enough to hold the two accountable for the crimes committed in 2007/08 post-election violence.

“The President and Vice-President were the ones in the dock and so they put lots of effort and resources into fighting the case,” Mr Annan noted.

He accused Kenyatta and Ruto of using government resources to fight the cases, adding that they (cases) collapsed because of witness interference.

His remarks have not gone down well with a section of the public that used the hashtag #SomeoneTellKofiAnnan to criticise him.

One specific user lashed out at Annan for ‘bringing bad memories’ back to the country.

Koffi Annan was the chief mediator after the disputed 2007 elections, reconciling then rivals former President Mwai Kibaki and former Prime Minister Raila Odinga.

During the skirmishes, about 1300 people died while 600,000 others were displaced.

Here are some of the reactions:

that he’s past the age of sponsoring and having grey hair is not a sign of wisdom. Atafutiwe ‘kihiki’ understanding.

The guy literally brokered a peace deal, but he cannot be given the time and space to air his opinion.

that Jubilee government has allocated shs 6B for the resettlement of imaginary IDPs in FY 16 /17 Budget @Kipezer
