Raila statement on withdrawal of President Uhuru ICC charges

After a long drawn legal contest, the International Criminal Court today withdrew charges against President Uhuru Kenyatta in regard to the post- election violence of 2007-2008.

On my own behalf and on behalf of my family, I wish to congratulate the President on this personal triumph that is also of great significance to our country.

It is my hope that with this burden taken away, my brother, President Uhuru Kenyatta will now focus all his energies and attention on serving the people of Kenya to the best of his ability.

I wish him well in this noble task.
