Nasa heads to ICC days to Raila's swearing-in

Nasa has resorted to going to the ICC at last minute as pressure mounts on them.

Speaking on behalf of the committee on Wednesday, Kakamega Senator Cleopas Malala revealed that the recently increasing number of politically instigated violence on Nasa supporters would be channeled to the Fatou Bensouda-led and Hague-based Court.

“We are calling upon the ICC to start investigating the recent profiling and killing of Nasa supporters,” Mr Malala told journalists during a press briefing in Nairobi on Wednesday.

The Senator disclosed that the Coalition would also be seeking audience with the United Nations Security Council through the sworn affidavits recognising Raila Odinga as the duly elected president, after the swearing-in fete slated for January 30.

“We are going to process and file a petition before the United Nations Security Council using the affidavits,” he stated.

He also divulged that the Coalition would be handing another petition to the African Union Assembly, European Union, and ICC to clamp down on the Jubilee administartion.

While the press conference was called to address the rising concerns of whether the affidavits have been signed by Nasa leaning lawmakers, Mr Malala brushed the matter stating that “nearly all MPs have signed, or those who have not signed have been given until Friday to finalise.”

Meanwhile, 15 counties which passed the People’s Assembly motions - Mombasa, Kwale, Kilifi, Mandera, Kitui, Machakos, Makueni, Kakamega, Vihiga, Bungoma, Busia, Siaya, Kisumu, Homa Bay and Migori – were on Monday sued by the Attorney General Prof Githu Muigai.

In a petition, the AG want the court to hear the matter urgently, as “there is an ongoing violation of the Constitution and the spending of public resources on unlawful activities,” he said.

“The establishment of the People’s Assemblies by the aforementioned county assemblies is an illegality as the institution is alien to the Constitution and is neither within the framework of the County Governments Act or any other legislation,” the court papers read.

Earlier, a High Court issued orders restraining all county assemblies from passing or implementing motions on the formation of the assemblies. Kitui High Court judge Lilian Mutende gave the order.
