Presidential candidates on trial
Swedish ambassador comments ICC trial in Kenya during NAI visit
International Criminal Court’s up-coming trial in Kenya is welcomed by many but also poses threat to stability. Uhuru Kenyatta and Willian Rutu are two of the accused for crime against humanity. They also stand as candidates in the presidential election next year.
– Whatever final verdict, the trial shows that from now on also those in power will be accountable for their actions, says Ann Dismorr, Swedish ambassador to Kenya.
NAI researcher Anders Sjögren is expert on politics in Kenya and Uganda. He was interviewed in Swedish Radio about the political situation in Kenya after the charges from ICC.
