Nairobi - Kenya's foreign minister says no sitting president
in the world has had to appear before a court, a statement that comes as Kenya
appears to be laying the groundwork to avoid having President Uhuru Kenyatta
appear at the International Criminal Court next month.
Kenyan political insiders and political analysts tell The
Associated Press it appears increasingly unlikely Kenyatta will travel to The
Hague as the court has ordered him to do.
Foreign Minister Amina Mohamed told a news conference on Wednesday
that Kenyatta has fully co-operated with the ICC so far, but now that he is
president "the circumstances are different".
Mohamed spoke three days before African leaders meet at the
African Union on Saturday to discuss Africa's relationship with the ICC.
Kenyatta faces crimes against humanity from Kenya's 2007-08
