Political, Social and Economic Developments within the last week

The perpetrators of the 2008 post-election violence will now face prosecution at the International Criminal Court (ICC) following the failure to establish a local tribunal by the 30 September deadline. The ICC chief prosecutor has already flown key witnesses out of the country.

The Kenya Anti-corruption Commission (KACC) director Justice (Rtd) Aaron Ringera gave in to public pressure and resigned. The move came three weeks after MPs nullified President Kibaki's gazette notice reappointing him and his two deputies.
