Although Kenya’s president is now free of charges made by the International Criminal Court, the controversial leader may be in for an entirely new set of problems.
Kenya’s President Uhuru Kenyatta was accused of committing crimes against humanity during the east African nation’s violent disputed 2007 elections.
The ethnic violence left more than 1,000 dead after gangs loyal to the leading candidates clashed throughout the country. Kenyatta was accused of aiding the militants on behalf of the winning candidate Mwai Kibaki. (Video via CCTV)
