HOPE OCAMPO WALKS THE TALK “Kenya will be an example to the world”.
International Criminal Court chief prosecutor Luis Moreno-Ocampo will arrive in Nairobi early next month to meet President Kibaki and Prime Minister Raila Odinga over the planned trial of key post-election violence suspects. Mr. Moreno-Ocampo on Tuesday received a letter from the government, inviting him to discuss the details of the trials on November 3. His office immediately confirmed that he would personally make the trip.

However, Mr. Moreno-Ocampo has made it clear that he would deal with not more than four of the 11 key suspects. The others, he said in his letter, should be tried by a local tribunal which the government has to establish in line with internationally-accepted standards, which require that the cases are cushioned from interference by the President’s and the Attorney-General’s powers to pardon suspects or terminate cases.

During his visit to Kenya last week, Mr. Annan also stated that both the Hague trials and the local tribunal have to be adopted to ensure justice for the victims. The government is now exploring the possibility of side-stepping Parliament in the formation of the local tribunal. Sources said a Special Division of the High Court could be set up to try the executors of the chaos.

Mr. Moreno-Ocampo’s November trip could signal a surprise to key politicians who opposed the local tribunal Bills in the hope that The Hague would take a longer time to start investigating the Kenyan case. The ICC prosecutor is expected to either seek the government’s help in arresting the suspects or allowing ICC investigators to arrest them at an appropriate time.

The Justice Minister said he was setting the record right over the ICC prosecutor’s impending visit which had been clouded in mystery. “There is a lot of confusion over this matter and I want to state here that I am waiting for Ocampo to confirm that he will come,” Mr. Kilonzo said.

Okay Mr. Kilonzo Kenyans are eagerly waiting for Ocampo’s confirmation. It will be a good lesson to the whole world and particularly our future leaders.

      Francis you are simple tribal, you have seen how people suffering in the post election violence. They are still suffering todate and you are busy saying that Ocampo will do zero. We do not want him because he is a foreigner, we need his services. The services that our good leaders Kibaki and Raila have failed to offer the country they sworn to serve just because they are afraid of the repercussions. Open your eyes and see what they are turning our country into.

    Let Ocampo come and wake up the sleeping dogs. We are tired of promises that are not taken into consideration and which don’t come to pass. As for Kibaki and Raila: is your trip to China more important than salvaging the little that has been left for Kenya….this is not about you, its about Kenyans. Let the perpetrators face judgment even if you are one among the many.

    According to this report… Ocampo has made it clear that he will take 4 of those named on the list to the Hague unlike his earlier report in which he indicated that he will take all on the list to the Hague ….dont know what he means but all we are requesting is some action more than 1000 lives lost is not a joke…..The poor and the rich are all equal in God’s hands….

    Come on guys……We all know that we Kenyans so much believe in foreigners solving our issues…pliz Kenya ni yetu if only we could get that mentality out…true our leaders have all the potential in making Kenya the best country ever if only they stopped being selfish….we put ourselves in these mess so we have better solutions to solving them…you see it takes good governance to change a country..Look at far are they having in mind the genocide and stuff like that. Good people lets learn from other countries ,Kenya is beautiful and a good place to live in if only and i insist…if only WE HAVE GOOD GOVERNMENT WITH LEADERS WHO HAVE A HEART…..PEACE!!!!!!!!!!!

    Francis he will help us who don’t know how to help ourselves. Ask yourself this question, even after being colonized, have we learnt anything from that ordeal? In any case we are colonizing ourselves. We cannot do anything at any given time. We need money we ask for donations from the first world countries, food the same thing, technology its even worse. Then you call your country independent. Kenya is like a soiled diaper and anytime it will begin to leak. Kibaki is our president YES but his actions as a president live a lot to be desired. He is selfish, a leech and greedy and he will not look out for you my dear Francis, he will look out for his own and you will be left out. You better act now and save your ass before you burn in hell. Show me what Kibaki has done to make the situation in Kenya any better, tell me!

    What is that you can deal with, you may have your ideas but trust me Kibaki and Raila have something else in store for you. For your info the minute Raila started vying for presidency I already knew trouble was brewing and made my decision NOT TO VOTE and so i did not.
