Why must the decision to hand over the “principal suspects” to Moreno Ocampo of the ICC be a joint one between President Mwai Kibaki and Prime Minister Raila Odinga? As of this time, only one these Kenyans sleeps in State House. Mr. Raila Odinga should write to Kofi Annan and Moreno Ocampo to let them know that, unlike the President, he, Mr. Raila Odinga, has no powers and keys to the key organs of state (the Judiciary, the Police, the Armed forces, the executive) to be able to order anybody to “round-up” or “try” or “enter nolle prosequi against” anybody the Hague wants! Mr. Odinga was the victim on post-election day. Why is he Mr. Odinga being asked to bury himself politically? This is political window-dressing of the first order, aimed at finishing off Mr. Odinga politically.
