ICC denies Ruto's requests, extends trial

The International Criminal Court (ICC) has ordered that the case against Deputy President William Ruto be held on a daily basis, followed by a short break later on.

The Star reports Deputy Ruto's requests to hold court proceedings on a two-week, on-and-off basis were denied, with a new plan set in place.

The court case will commence from September 10 to October 4, and then from October 14 until November 1, writes The Star.

Ruto along with radio journalist, Joshua Sang are being charged with crimes against humanity.
 
President Uhuru Kenyatta’s trial is set to start shortly afterwards, on November 12. 

Officials noted that “there may be a need to modify the sitting schedule in the present case once the trial in the Kenyatta case commences”, via The Star.
