ICC Sets William Ruto Free
Deputy President William Ruto and former radio presenter Joshua arap Sang have been set free by the International Criminal Court.
Judges decided by a majority that DP Ruto and Mr Sang case be terminated, adding that the decision does not preclude future prosecution at the ICC or in a national jurisdiction.
The duo have been freed from charges of crimes against humanity arising from the 2007/2008 post-election violence that left some 1,113 people dead and more than 500,000 internally displaced.
The announcement immediately sparked celebrations on Ruto’s home turf Eldoret who praised ICC’s ruling.
