Tesfaye Ejigu

 The security council of the United Nations voted against the African Union’s proposal to delay the impeachment for a year of Kenya’s president Uhuru Kenyata and deputy president William Rutto. Only Seven votes came in favor of the proposal from the 15 council members. The Africans run short of two votes to have the case postponed.  Britain, France and the USA- all members and supporters of the ICC, abstained from voting.
