by Reuters 0

Kenyatta said he wanted a case against his deputy, William Ruto, dropped too.

He was attending a meeting of officials and business executives when the news broke. In his first comments, he said: “One down, two to go”, a reference to Ruto and another Kenyan also facing charges of crimes against humanity at the court.

He also said he was “excited” and wanted to “run home to my wife” to tell her the news.
