The International Criminal Court will not drop the crimes against humanity charges against Kenyan president-elect Uhuru Kenyatta, The Hague-based court's chief prosecutor said Wednesday.
"We will not drop the charges," Fatou Bensouda told reporters in Paris, saying it was only a question of when, not if, he goes to trial.
Kenyatta, 51, stands accused of orchestrating deadly violence that followed disputed polls five years ago. He was named Kenya's new president in a closely-fought election this month, though his main rival has filed a legal challenge against the win.
