What you need to know:

  • Approval for ICC takes regional pattern with support in Central down to only 17 per cent
  • The findings of the poll by Ipsos Synovate show that 67 per cent of those interviewed would like the President to attend court.
  • Mr Wolf said that those in support of the case particularly in Jubilee-dominated areas believe that the evidence against the leaders was weak and that they will emerge stronger if their cases are dismissed.

Most Kenyans would like President Kenyatta to attend his trial at the ICC after the court allowed him to be absent for some of the sessions, a new survey shows.
