Afew weeks ago,lawyer paul Gicheru who was accused of aiding in influencing the withdrawal and disappearance of ICC witnesses finally surrendered to the ICC.
Gicheru,whose warrants for arrest were issued in 2015,has ostensibly been living in kenya comfortably.
With this surrender,afew questions arise?
1.From 2015,who has been protecting him from icc possible arrests?
2.What information does he have about the ICC cases that may help Icc find justice for PEV victims?
3.Was this surrender planned or was it coincidental?And why now?
4.Could this surrender be politically instigated or related to 2022 succession politics?
5.Was Gicherus surrender including his travel plans to the Haque secret or the state was aware of his travel?
6.If found true that he aided in the dissapearance of witnesses,what potential effects does it have on the reopening of the ICC cases?
7.If the cases were to be reopened,what effects will it have on the Bbi referendum and 2022 general elections?
As we sing,drink and sleep talking Bbi,it is important we ponder about this ICC thing as we approach 2022 elections as acountry.
