Joshua Sang joins politics after ICC victory

Former radio journalist Joshua Sang now says he is considering running for public office following a “request from the people”.

On Tuesday, International Criminal Court (ICC) prosecutor judges by majority terminated crimes against humanity charges against Sang and Deputy President William Ruto.

“I am consulting with several advisors about what seat to run for. If I do run for a political seat, I will do so on a Jubilee ticket,” said Sang.


In 2013, Sang’ had thrown his weight behind former Prime Minister Raila Odinga’s presidential bid. Mr Odinga lost to president Uhuru Kenyatta.

Sang now laments that the ICC case has “turned my life upside down”.

“I lost my job at Kass FM, I had to transfer my children from their schools because they were being taunted, I missed my daughters graduation… It is unfortunate that a wrong case was allowed to go on for so long,” said Sang.

“Even if the prosecutor starts another case I am not afraid because I did nothing to orchestrate the post elections violence. I will remain innocent.”
