Breaking news have emerged on how a senior politician in the new government was implicated in the murder of ICC lawyer Paul Gicheru.
Sources closer to the DCI who have since uncovered the unraveling truth says a rogue senior politician in the new elected government ordered the excursion on the lawyer in cold blood at his home in Karen in Monday morning.
Lawyer Paul Gicheru, who died in Nairobi on Monday was facing six counts of bribery and corruptly inducing witnesses to interfere with justice in a case against President William Ruto and journalist Joshua Arap Sang that was dismissed in 2016.
He was facing a 30-year jail term should he be found guilty of the charges.
This was after the ICC Pre-Trial Chamber A on 15 July 2021, confirmed the charges of offences against the administration of justice brought by the Prosecutor and committed him to trial.
The ICC accused Gicheru of playing a key role in a scheme to influence witnesses.
Ruto and his co-accused Sang were both charged with instigating ethnic violence after the disputed 2007 election in which more than 1,000 people died and hundreds of thousands were displaced.
However, the ICC judges ruled in 2016 that the two had no case to answer, although they left the door open to possible fresh charges in future, noting that the case had been hampered by political interference and threats against witnesses.
A warrant of arrest by ICC was subsequently issued against Gicheru in 2015 for offences against the administration of justice consisting in corruptly influencing witnesses regarding cases from the situation in Kenya.
In what astounded both his lawyers and government officials, Gicheru who had been a wanted man for years, surrendered to the ICC in 2020
