UK 'violated protocol' in Kenya

Three UK diplomats are evicted by a politician from a hotel meeting in the home town of Kenya's deputy president amid a row over the ICC.

Three UK diplomats have been evicted from a hotel meeting in Eldoret in Kenya's Rift Valley by a local politician for "violating protocol".
They were also suspected of interfering in the International Criminal Court cases of Kenya's leaders at The Hague.
Eldoret is the home of Deputy President William Ruto, who has been charged with crimes against humanity.
The UK says their High Commission officials were in the area to discuss a sports event to promote peace.
The charges against Mr Ruto and President Uhuru Kenyatta relate to violence following the disputed 2007 election, which left some 1,200 people dead.
The BBC's David Okwembah in the capital, Nairobi, says diplomatic relations between Kenya and the UK are at an all-time low because of the ICC cases.
Last week, the UN Security Council rejected an attempt to suspend the trials at the ICC for a year.
The resolution fell short of two votes needed to pass it, with the UK, US and France abstaining.
Daniel Chemno, the deputy governor of Uasin Gishu county, stormed into a meeting on Thursday at a hotel in Eldoret where the British officials were meeting civil society groups.
"How can you come here without having the courtesy of notifying the county government of your presence and purpose of your visit as diplomatic protocol demands?" he said.
Their presence had raised suspicion that they were on a mission to collect new evidence and recruit additional witnesses to testify at The Hague, he added.
The UK foreign office said in a statement that the British High Commission had informed the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the visit prior to travelling, and had separately sought to arrange a meeting with the governor's office.
"The officials later met the deputy governor and separately members of the county assembly," the statement said.
The officials also met a "range of individuals and organisations involved in efforts to build peaceful relations between different communities in the region, including a council of elders, church leaders and peace activists".
"The UK is a proud partner of Uasin Gishu and Kenya, and has a long history of partnership that we wish to develop even further."
This week at an annual meeting of ICC member states, there was a discussion about whether the treaty setting up the court should be changed to allow heads of states immunity from prosecution.
The ICC trial of Mr Kenyatta, who denies the charges he faces, is due to start in February.
Our correspondent says European diplomats wrote a letter printed in Kenyan papers earlier this week raising concern that several ambassadors - including those from France, Germany and Italy - have been waiting for months to present their credentials to President Kenyatta.
State House has blamed this on the president's "busy schedule" and not a snub linked to the ICC, he says.

Love the article on Gaddafi
We must rise above tribalism & divide & rule of the colonialist who stole & looted our treasure & planted their puppets to lord it over us..they alone can decide on whosoever is performing & the one that is corrupt..but the most corrupt nations are the western countries that plunder the resources of other nations & make them poorer & aid the rulers to steal & keep such ill gotten wealth in their country..yemen,syria etc have killed more than gadhafi but its not A̷̷̴ good investment for the west(this is laughable)because oil is not in these countries..when obasanjo annihilated the odi people in rivers state, they looked away because its in their favour & interest..one day!

Hello from
Johannesburg
I was amazed to find a website for Africans in Hungary.
Looks like you have quite a community there. Here in SA we have some three million Zimbabweans living in exile and not much sign of going home ... but in Hungary??? Hope to meet you on one of my trips to Europe; was in Steirmark Austria near the Hungarian border earlier this month. Every good wish for 2011. Geoff in Jo'burg

I'm impressed by
ANH work but...
Interesting interview...
I think from what have been said, the Nigerian embassy here seem to be more concern about its nationals than we are for ourselves. Our complete disregard for the laws of Hungary isn't going to help Nigeria's image or going to promote what the Embassy is trying to showcase. So if the journalists could zoom-in more focus on Nigerians living, working and studying here in Hungary than scrutinizing the embassy and its every move, i think it would be of tremendous help to the embassy serving its nationals better and create more awareness about where we live . Taking the issues of illicit drugs and forged documents as typical examples.. there are so many cases of Nigerians been involved. But i am yet to read of it in e.news. So i think if only you and your journalists could write more about it and follow up on the stories i think it will make our nationals more aware of what to expect. I wouldn't say i am not impressed with your work but you need to be more of a two way street rather than a one way street . Keep up the good work... Sylvia
