The day of reckoning for post-election violence suspects is finally a couple of hours away. The International Criminal Court Chief Prosecutor Louis Moreno-Ocampo will on Wednesday name the six suspects he is targeting for pros over the violence that claimed 1,200 lives. He will be naming the suspects only nine days before Christmas, and it will be celebration for the hundreds of thousands of those wronged during the violence that pushed Kenya into a political crisis. But a restless Christmas awaits the six who will be made known at a press conference on Wednesday at 5pm, Kenyan time, at The Hague, Netherlands. According to a press release from the ICC, Moreno-Ocampo will hold a press conference in the Press Briefing room of the ICC, to "make an important announcement concerning the investigation in the Kenya situation". Press conference During a visit to Kenya ten days ago, Moreno-Ocampo said the suspects he is targeting for indictment would be known by this Wednesday. The ICC has made arrangements to broadcast the press conference on the Internet. It can be watched at "http://livestream.xs4all.nl/icc5.asx" link. Though thousands of miles away, Moreno-Ocampo’s pronouncement is expected to immediately generate tension. As the clock ticks towards Wednesday, Kenyans will be waiting anxiously to know who is on Moreno-Ocampo list. The naming will signal that he is ready to go before ICC judges to ask for the indictment of the suspects.But even before he makes known his pick, some politicians have already demanded certain individuals must be on the Ocampo list. Last week, 16 MPs allied to Deputy Prime Minister, Uhuru Kenyatta, and suspended Cabinet Minister, William Ruto, issued a press statement threatening to disrupt the ICC work if certain names are left out. Agriculture Assistant Minister, Kareke Mbiuki, has particularly warned of unspecified action if the PM’s name does not feature in the list of suspects.
