M7 Blasts ICC At Uhuru Inauguration

Uganda’s President Yoweri Museveni has condemned the International Criminal Court (ICC) for ‘unfairly’ targeting certain African leaders.

Delivering a speech during the inauguration of Kenya’s fourth President Uhuru Kenyatta, Museveni said he once supported ICC, but had since changed his position because of its apparent selective justice system. He said the body was being used by the west to install leaders of their choice in Africa and because of that he thanked Kenyans for rejecting the blackmail of the west and voting leaders that they really wanted.

In his speech, President Museveni also thanked outgoing Prime Minister Raila Odinga for giving Dem0cracy a chance, saying the fact that elections were held peacefully was Democracy by completion and should be commended.

Uhuru Kenyatta is Kenya’s Fourth President and son to its first, this marks his return to Kenya’s state house as a president and not a first son.

His name Kenyatta means ‘Light Of Kenya”

  1. Well, its hard to take M7 seriously on this matter. Many people died in 2007 and there must be killers!! He himself has previously said he could pardon the misled(the followers) but not the misleaders!! The ICC’s initial investigations led to the indictment of Uhuru and Ruto, among others. They should have their day in the court and can implicate any one else they know was involved. On what premise does M7 base to establish blackmail in this case?? Why is it that elections in both Uganda and Kenya are always disputed and have to first be taken to court? The Kenyans have exhibited far more maturity in their elections than we have here. They should be the ones preaching to us. At least they haven’t had cases such as the one where Besigye was nominated a candidate while behind bars. The ICC may be selective in its pursuit of justice(Bush and Blair and many others are supposed to be on trial for crimes against humanity but are still roaming freely) but there are several other global institutions that are not always fair that the president supports such as the UN security council etc. We should take his complaint against the ICC with a pint of salt. If crimes against humanity are committed(as they were), where should the ICC start? Or should it have just looked the other way?
