In AG Githu Muigai Has Earned Worst Attorney General Title In Record Time posted back in January this year and only a few months after he was appointed, I made the case why the AG had earned this dubious distinction.
A lot has happened since that if anything made that case even stronger and, as if not to disappoint in that assessment, it is now being reported by the Standard Online that the Muigai now wants the ICC cases to be postponed because going forward with the cases is going to be an inconvenience for Uhuru and Ruto in case we have a run-off.
Is this man really serious?
That reason is not only the lamest and laughable excuse one can give to defer any criminal case, let alone an ICC case it goes to show Muigai and those whose interests he is serving in raising this lame argument either don’t respect the law or they don’t have any respect for the victims of PEV either.
It’s perfectly okay for the AG to say things that are embarrassing to himself and those he represents locally but it’s quite another thing when he embarrasses us all on an international level such as what he has done here–yet again.
I am without words and so should everyone except to tell the AG to simply start wearing a bag over his head for I don’t know how he faces the public upon saying things like this.
But he again may not be fazed by what he has said and more so the reason he earns the title he has bestowed upon himself.
Here is an excerpt from the story.
“Government wants The Hague trials against two presidential candidates — Deputy Prime Minister Uhuru Kenyatta and Eldoret North MP William Ruto — postponed because of the likelihood of a run-off in the race to State House. Though it is not clear if the State will formally seek the delay through an appeal to the International Criminal Court, Attorney General Githu Muigai told an international forum on The Hague-based court that ICC should be flexible and sensitive to Kenya’s plea.”
“The Kenyan case is more complex because two suspects are presidential aspirants in next year’s polls,” Githu told the ICC conference in Nuremberg, Germany. Githu was making a presentation on Kenya’s efforts to complement ICC on prosecuting other perpetrators of the 2008 post-election chaos, on Saturday.”
Even our brothers and sisters who worship these men must surely agree this is got to be a joke.
Please don’t get me wrong; I am all for these two not to be prevented from vying for whatever office they fancy, including the presidency but this is way too embarrassing for the AG to make and one which is also clearly without any legal of factual basis.
