Former Head of Public Service Francis Muthaura on Wednesday spoke out about the pain and anguish that his trial at The Hague caused his family, especially his elderly parents. Speaking at a press conference about his International Criminal Court case which was dropped due to lack of evidence, Mr Muthaura said that the career-threatening charges — which saw him quit his job as head of the civil service and secretary to the Cabinet — caused him and close family members a lot of pain. On Monday, ICC prosecutor Fatou Bensouda said she was withdrawing charges against Mr Muthaura-who is charged with crimes including murder, rape and forceful deportation of populations after a crucial witness was dropped by the prosecution.
