Now that Louis Moreno-Ocampo is expected to jet into the country any time next month, what do Kenyans expect of him? Is he the solution to their trouble? Will he heal the wounded hearts? What are some of the possible solutions? Or are people expecting too much from him?
Louis Moreno-Ocampo has become a house hold name in the country; people believe that he has the solution to the country’s teething problem. Visit the villages and towns, ask them to describe the man and you will get all sorts of answers and descriptions. But they all have one thing in common; they paint the man as a ‘saviour’, the only person who, currently, can avert repercussions of the violence that took place in 2007/08.
But who’s this man called Ocampo? For starters, he is the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court (ICC) based at The Hague. So what is his main aim? To bring an end to impunity in the country. This is a rampant problem amongst Kenyan leaders; they do anything knowing that they will not be asked. This has caused so much trouble and pain in the country. So what are some of the possible solution(s)? Is it in Kenyans themselves? Or is the ICC the solution for the Nation? Where is the church in all this? Could it be our only solution?
