Kenyan lawyer Paul Gicheru will appear in Courtroom I of the International Criminal Court (ICC) before Judge Reine Adélaïde Sophie Alapini-Gansou of Pre-Trial Chamber A at around 7 pm.

Gicheru who surrendered earlier this week, will appear via video link from the ICC detention center.

This is mainly due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As a result, only a limited number of public and media representatives will be able to access the hearing at the seat of the Court.

While the lawyer is wanted for witness bribery in the William Ruto and Joshua Sang case, Kahawa Tungu reported that his surrender could have been linked to the mysterious death of lawyer Mutula Kilonzo.

According to sources privy to the issue, Gicheru is well aware of the circumstances surrounding the death of the Makueni Senator who was approached by the ICC to be a key witness in the case against DP Ruto.

Kilonzo is said to have spoken to various security chiefs and ICC representatives in 2008 before his death.

In the discussion, the late legislator expressed shock and disgust at the level and manner of killings in 2007/2008 in Rift Valley calling it planned and targeted.
