Nandi Senator Stephen Sang has been accused of ‘fixing’ Deputy President William Ruto following the 2007-2008 post-election violence.
In 2015, an ICC witness Philip Koech while testifying before the Hague based court claimed that Mr Sang was among those who linked him to donor agencies.
But in a quick rejoinder, the Senator claimed that he worked at the Usaid on a Governance and Democracy Programme saying that he is not aware of “witness fixing” because his duties were on public forums.
Sang instead blamed Governor Cleophas Lagat among politicians plotting to undermine him using the ICC issue.
Mr Sang is eyeing the Nandi gubernatorial seat.
He is expected to face stiff competition from former cabinet minister Henry Kosgey.
Last week, Mr Kosgey a former MP for Tinderet denied reports that he had bolted out of the race and opted to vie for the senatorial seat.
“I want to assure my supporters and all residents of Nandi County that am very much still in the race to becoming their next governor and they should ignore claims that I have opted to step aside at the expense of anyone else,” said Mr Kosgey.
Mr Kosgey while attending a church service recently in the county asked residents to be cautious of hypocrites purporting to be leaders.
“As we head into the election, we should be watchful of some leaders who are sell outs. Some of them betrayed our leaders at the ICC and so they don’t deserve to be elected,” said Mr Kosgey on what sounded like an attack on Mr Sang.
