What you need to know:

  • Sources in Government indicated that the President spent much of Sunday in meetings with top advisors and aides over the critical decision on his trial for crimes against humanity relating to the 2007-2008 post-election violence.
  • Senate Minority leader Moses Wetang’ula told a rally in Nairobi that Opposition legislators would skip Monday’s session because according to the Constitution, the President should only address the House on national, and not private, matters.
  • At Menengai High School in Nakuru, Mr Ruto said that President Uhuru was in charge of the country and reaffirmed the stability of the Jubilee government and that no amount of political games or scheming will destabilise it.

President Uhuru Kenyatta’s defence team has flown to The Hague, signalling that he is likely to tell a special session of Parliament Monday that he will honour the summons to attend Wednesday’s status conference at the International Criminal Court in person.
The Opposition alliance, Cord, Sunday said its MPs and senators will boycott the joint session.
