  • Speaking in Kiswahili, he declared the five-year relationship with the ICC over.

  • The choice of Nakuru for the rally was laced with symbolism, because it was in that town that the Jubilee coalition was launched in December 2012.

Themes of reconciliation and national unity dominated the major rally held by the Jubilee coalition in Nakuru where President Kenyatta seemed to slam the door shut on any further cooperation with the International Criminal Court.
