The National Super Alliance (NASA) has dismissed claims by Deputy President William Ruto that they were planning to revive cases at the International Criminal Court (ICC).
NASA says Jubilee Party is attempting to resurrect the ICC debate to whip up emotions among supporters, and win sympathy votes.
"Our opponents are trying to revive strange (ICC) things to seek sympathy. This election is about accountability and why the cost of living has gone through the roof." NAS Campaign Manager, Musalia Mudavadi said, during the launch of ANC's manifesto at the party's headquarters in Lavington, Nairobi on Wednesday.
Deputy President William Ruto during a campaign rally in Nandi County earlier this week accused the opposition of planning to resurrect the cases if they form the next government. "We are aware of a plan by our competitors in NASA to have the cases we had at ICC resurrected in the event that they win the election. Their plans will not work." Ruto said.
Mudavadi said that the Jubilee administration was resorting to engaging on non-issues to cover up their failures in the last four years.
Mudavadi expressed worries on the country’s huge foreign debts, saying that the Jubilee Administration squandered most of the borrowed funds, by inflating the cost of projects such as the Standard Gauge Railway. "We do not mind having a railway line from Mombasa to Uganda, what we are saying is, give it to us at a fair cost," he said.
