ADDIS ABABA (Reuters) – African leaders backed Kenya’s plan to defer the cases of key suspects accused by the International Criminal Court (ICC) of masterminding post-election violence, the African Union said on Monday. Boosted by the vote of confidence, Kenya is now likely to call for the U.N. Security Council to defer or suspend the trials from taking place for a year while it overhauls its judiciary to handle the cases. Kibaki said on Monday the east African country was preparing the ground for local trials after adopting a new constitution in August that was designed to strengthen the judiciary.

I am pleased that Joe Biden’s visit may not just be another stop over.
We now know that if we pass the new constitution the dollars will flow through the windows and the doors as Biden said yesterday at a joint Press Conference with President Kibaki. Now, I wish to assure Joe Biden that we are passing this constitution. Therefore please start counting the dollars so that we won’t have to wait after August 4th.
