Kenya is given “a further time-limited opportunity to provide certain records which the prosecution previously requested on the basis that the records are relevant to a central allegation to the case,” the ICC said.

Prosecutors allege that more than 1,100 people died and hundreds-of-thousands of others were displaced in the country’s Rift Valley and elsewhere in clashes between pro-ruling and opposition party supporters.

Kenyatta’s trial and that of Kenyan Vice President William Ruto, who faces similar charges, have been dogged by problems and delays who have also maintained their innocence.

These include accusations of witness intimidation and witness withdrawals, false testimony from other witnesses, and Kenya’s international campaign to have the trials put on hold.

African leaders frequently complain that the ICC discriminates against their continent posting several arguments which include allegations that the court is targeting Africans.
