International Criminal Court Prosecutor Luis Moreono-Ocampo will not prefer any charges against President Kibaki and Prime Minister Raila Odinga. Why not Kibaki and Raila: "We followed evidence strictly and it was not based on political responsibility," said Ocampo. He underscored that there is a lot of political debate but that was not his business because he was only interested in the killings, displacements and rape and he has no evidence linking those two. Asked how he came to the conclusion that only those six people were most culpable, Ocampo pointed at a chart he used in analysing his evidence. "We did an analysis of different locations where the violence happened, the number of people killed in those places through the violence, police and Mungiki and the sexual offences. "We are saying this people are the most responsible but there are others who also committed crimes and should face the law," said Ocampo Despite the latest attempts by Cabinet to stop the ICC process with a local judicial process, Ocampo said the ICC appreciates the co-operation they were receiving from Kibaki and Raila. He, however, said they should ensure the suspects are not in positions of power to interfere with the process. Ocampo denied allegations that he was politicising the case by favouring some groups. Defend himself "My work is to collect the evidence. Mr (William) Ruto complained that KNHCR never gave him an opportunity to defend himself and we listened to him. We are willing to listen to others," said Ocampo. He then called on Kenyan citizens to take responsibility and ensure that justice takes place, because hundreds of people were raped while many more require healing as hundreds still live in displacement camps. He said the suspects were free to speak to the media as long as they do not threaten witnesses. "Our witnesses are not in Kenya but we are checking on reports about attempts to threaten some people."
