Dr David Nyekorach-Matsanga held a press conference today at the International Criminal Court, Hague. In his briefing to the press he criticised Chief prosecutor Moreno Ocampo, characterising him as incompetent and unfit to hold office.
Pointing out the chief prosecutor’s weaknesses, Dr Matsanga stated as follows;
- That there is no threshold in the Kenyan cases as they don’t meet international standards of ICC
- That flawed investigations by the Chief Prosecutor have led to a bungled case
- That fake and outlawed witnesses gathered through duress, inducement and bribery is being used by the prosecution to persecute the six Kenyan suspects
- That there has been a violation of the Rule of Complementarity by the ICC Chief Prosecutor
- And that there is Political underhand by the international community.
Dr Matsanga participated together with UN delegates and other international peace makers in trying to bring together President Yoweri Museveni and General Joseph Kony in an effort to end the conflict in Uganda.
Video part one:
Through his efforts, General Kony’s LRA agreed to move out of South Sudan territory where they used to operate in their fight against Museveni’s government.
Video part 2:
His efforts were almost bringing peace to Uganda, but Chief prosecutor Ocampo decided to disrupt the whole process, according to Dr Matsanga, when he issued a warrant of arrest on General Kony and some of his men.
Dr Matsanga blames the Chief prosecutor for issuing the warrant of arrest that made Kony to be suspicious of the whole peace process leading to his refusal to sign the final peace agreement which was to bring peace to the country.
In his analysis on the Kenya case, Dr Matsanga writes as follows;
“Rift Valley: Rift Valley recorded 744 deaths out of the 1,133 deaths due to PEV. This constitutes 65.6% of the deaths due to PEV. Naivasha and Nakuru recorded 258 deaths or 34.6% of the Rift Valley total killed and 22.7% of the national total. Of the 258 killed 102 were Kikuyu while approximately 20 wer PNU supporters from Kisii and Kamba communities. As such a total of 122 people who died in Nakuru and Naivasha were PNU supporters compared to 100 ODM supporters killed made up of the 66 ODM supporters who died in Nakuru and 34 ODM supporters (30 Luo and 4 Kalenjin) who died in Naivasha. Thus, in the two theaters of violence (Nakuru and Naivasha) 47% of the known dead were PNU supporters with Kikuyu alone comprising 39.5% of the dead. The ODM supporters all comprised 100 or 38.7%. A total of 50 or 24% were recorded as unknown. Thus, the Kikuyu comprised most of the victims of PEV in the Naivasha and Nakuru.”
In his analysis, Dr Matsanga continues to detail the events in the Rift Valley as follows;
1. Nakuru District: 208 deaths were recorded at the mortuary between December 31, 2007 and March 1, 2008. Of these 97 persons constituting 46% of the total dead were Kikuyu. The Luo/Kalenjin and Luhyia constituted 66 or 31% of the total dead. 50 persons constituting 24% of the total were recorded as unknown. The notion that PNU or Kikuyu leaders working with Mungiki killed ODM supporters cannot be supported by the official death figures recorded at the Nakuru mortuary.
2. Molo District: 94 deaths were recorded during the PEV of which 58 were Kikuyu and five wer Kisii and Kamba who were known as supporting President Kibaki at the time. Thus, in total there were 63 PNU supporters killed in Molo making 61.7% of those killed. 31 or 33% of the rest were mainly Kalenjin who supported ODM.
3. Naivasha District: There were 40 deaths reported in Naivasha town and another 10 deaths reported in Gilgil making a total of 50 deaths in Naivasha District. Of the 50 dead in Naivasha, the causes of death were 23 burning, 6 gunshots, 12 injury. In terms of tribes 30 (605) of the dead were Luo while 5 (105) were Kikuyu while another 4 were PNU supporters, while an additional 4 were Kalenjin who were supporting the Luo. Of the Luo killed, 19 died in one incident where a house was burned. This shows the importance of the house burning incidence in the Ocampo case.
If one looks at the Naivasha town killings, they compare well with the Molo incidence. In Naivasha, the majority of the victims were Luo in a predominantly Kikuyu area. In Molo the majority of the victims were Kikuyu who made up 61.7% or 58 out of the 94 killed in Molo District. The majority of those who died in Molo were Kalenjin because they are the second largest community after Kikuyu in Molo. In terms of Molo deaths, they were widespread unlike in Naivasha where the majority of the dead died in one incident; concludes Matsanga.
