Witness against Ruto in ICC case steps down

International Criminal Court (ICC) witness who was supposed to testify against Deputy President-elect William Ruto has stepped down.  The witness through lawyer Paul Gicheru, wrote to the ICC prosecutor withdrawing each and every piece of evidence attributed to him and asked to have his name removed from the list of the prosecution witnesses. He explains in a sworn affidavit that during the 2007 general election he was a PNU official but after election he was induced and enticed to be a witness of the ICC. Ruto was one of the ODM pentagon members.
