Judge Koffi Kumelio A. Afande, who has served on both the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia (ICTY), and the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda (ICTR) has given a damning appraisal of the outcome of the Kenyan cases at the International Criminal Court (ICC) for the victims, particularly on reparations. It is rare to hear a judge of Afande’s stature speak so frankly of the shortcomings the international criminal justice system.

Kenya is currently one of the most interesting countries to follow if you are interested in rule of law development and justice innovation. Rule of law is being built. Political parties are invoking the law. The Supreme Court sees a breach and elections are declared null and void. All political groupings are respecting the judgement. All are using the law and the constitution.

The role played by some of the who’s who in the legal fraternity, some of whom were involved in the pre-ICC investigations into the violence, is particularly intriguing.

When the prosecutor of the International Criminal Court indicted six Kenyans, he promised the victims and the world that Kenya would be an example on how to manage elections, avoid mass atrocities and ensure justice for the victims. But the Court has delivered on none of the above. Instead, the eight-year wait for justice through convictions and/or reparation appears to have been in vain.

There have been reports of widespread relief among staff of the International Criminal Court (ICC) that their long-running and dramatic political run-in with Kenya was finally a thing of the past following the recent collapse of the last cases relating to the 2007/08 post-election violence. But the fight over three outstanding warrants of arrest — for three Kenyan citizens wanted by the Court on charges of obstructing justice and intimidating witnesses — suggests that the battle between Nairobi and The Hague isn’t over just yet.
