Deputy Prime minister Uhuru Kenyatta, William Ruto, Henry Kosgey, Joshua Arap sang, Francis Muthaura and Former police commissioner Hussein Ali have been named by Ocampo as the prime architects of the violence that followed the rigged 2007 elections.
Messrs Ruto and Kenyatta plan to run for the top job in the country in 2012. Its not yet known how their supporters and tribesmen will react to the news of their impending change of address to a cell in the Hague if found guilty.
I personally hope all those named will resign from any political office until their names are cleared. We cannot have alleged genocidaires running political offices.
We'll update you as soon as this fast evolving story throws up new stuff.
