  • This means President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy still have to address the fear of the possible ethnic political violence.
  • The latest Ipsos poll shows more than half of Kenyans are either certain or think there is a possibility of violence if Mr Ruto is convicted in a case facing him at the Hague.
  • Mr Ruto is facing charges of being “criminally responsible as a co-perpetrator” to the crimes against humanity.
  • The findings indicate just a third of Kenyans are certain there will be no violence upon the convictions, meaning those involved in reconciliation have to work harder.
