Museveni Stirs Up ICC Debate at Inauguration
Uganda’s president Yoweri Museveni stirred up ICC debate during President Uhuru’s inauguration ceremony on Tuesday.
Museveni, who is also the the Comesa chairman, was among dignitaries attending the swearing in and handing over ceremony held at Moi InternationalSports Centre Kasarani.
“I want to salute the Kenyan voters on one issue – the rejection of the blackmail by the International Criminal Court (ICC) and those who seek to abuse this institution for their own agenda” Museveni said in statement.
He further added: “I was one of those that supported the ICC because I abhor impunity. However, the usual opinionated and arrogant actors using their careless analysis have distorted the purpose of that institution”.
