A Kenyan Legislator has  denied reports that she worked with the International Criminal Court (ICC) to have both Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto committed for trial at the International Criminal Court (ICC).

Countering media challenges that she clear her name that she was involved in fixing the Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy, William Ruto’s case at the International Criminal Court (ICC) Ms Priscilla Nyokabi, who represents the women of Nyeri in the Kenyan parliament, described the comments on Facebook as being “falsehoods, propaganda and rumours” to taint her name. She said her role as the executive director of Kituo cha Sheria, was mainly to settle post-election violence victims through the ‘Operation Rudi Nyumbani’ initiative and the push for compensation. “I was not involved in any of the allegations. Our work as an NGO was just to settle victims. They have started empty politicking. They should wait for 2017 general elections and at that time, Nyeri voters will decide,” she said.

The challenge for Ms Nyokabi to come and defend herself had been made by the CEO Africa World Media Ltd, Dr David Matsanga, who in a statement issued to the media, a copy of which was emailed to The London Evening Post tasked Ms Nyokabi to clear her name live on national television. He said that it will prove to the world ‘who the liar is’. In retaliation to what he described as ‘doctored pieces’ that featured in the Sunday Nation newspaper of 9th November, Matsanga swore that “Nyokabi be damned if she came and damned if she did not appear to clear her name live on the Kenyan popular live talk show hosted by KTN’s Jeff Koinange dubbed ‘JKL live’.

    I used to have great respect for your paper till you revealed your association with this con-impostor Matsanga. How can a form 4 drop out be your East African bureau chief!??

    The con artist….Matsanga, despite lack of grammatical coherence,eloquence goes ahead to impersonate a PhD holder. No wonder Museveni’s tyranny has lasted this long. How can fortune seekers like Matsanga be linked to a ‘mouth piece’ for Uganda’s liberation !!?? Having betrayed Smith Opon Acak what will stop Matasanga selling General Tinyefuza and stifle the only hope left for removal of dynastic tyrrany??????

      Dear Trizah

      Dr Matsanga is not our East African Bureau ‘chief’. We do not have anybody with that title as yet. While he is our CEO, he has no editorial influence on this news forum.

      We hasten to add that we are satisfied with his academic qualifications, some of which we certainly have witnessed.

      Lastly, we have no proof he had anything to do with the death of Smith Opon Acak. but if you do, we would only be too happy to avail it to our readers.

      Thanks for your interest in The London Evening Post.
      Editorial Team.
