President William Ruto on Monday paid a visit to the Dutch city of Hague, where the International Criminal Court headquarters patches itself.
Ruto made such a visit in 2013 as the Deputy President of Kenya. Dr Ruto was facing criminal charges linking him to the 2007 post-election violence. The case also charged former radio presenter Joshua Arap Sang. In 2016, the court dropped the case due to a lack of evidence.
Nearly a decade after ICC dropped the case, Dr Ruto has returned to the city in a 2-day State visit as the President. He cruised in a presidential motorcade fringed with outriders as he left the Kenyan Embassy for an official meeting with King Willem-Alexander and Queen Máxima of the Netherlands at Noordeinde Palace.
In the meeting, Ruto exalted the relations between Kenya and Netherlands. The 2 leaders agreed to reinforce ties between the countries for cumulative mutual benefit. Their area of focus includes tea, coffee, horticulture, vegetables, fruits, fish and tobacco.
Ruto highlighted the climate change crisis that continues to hold countries captive. His insistent push for a joint partnership in addressing the climate change problem borrows from the theme of Kenya’s agenda for green growth and wildlife conservation.
King Willem promised that the Netherlands will support Kenya in health, infrastructure and agricultural research, especially in arid and semi-arid lands.
Ruto my president let the babu Raila continue with demos so he can face icc n die there.If I were u I Will encourage this old foolish dying man Raila to continue causing mayhem ndio tu peleka his old ass there kikufie huko.Bure kabisa Huyu mzee
This bankrupt country can't pay civil servants, but has enough money for Tanga tanga and his wife to fly around the world like they are walking in and out of a choo. You elected this moron you deserve it.
Ruto was not elected. He stole the elections through the back door! Raila defeated Ruto with over 2 million votes! And you wonder why Kenyans are so bitter with Ruto.
Ruto is a criminal with a pending case at the ICC! He killed many Kenyans; children included and these white folks have the audacity to welcome him at their palace. What do they want now? A state visit to Maasai Mara where Yebei was eaten by hyenas? Nonsense!
They should have arrested him (Samoei) and taken him directly to the ICC and asked him to tell the Kenyan people what happened to Attorney Gicheru who died in Nairobi on September 27, 2022.
He (Gicheru) was a Kenyan lawyer charged at the International Criminal Court with bribing witnesses in the collapsed trial of Samoei six years ago.
