Previously, Whitehall had insisted that official relations with Kenyatta and Vice-President William Ruto would be limited to ‘essential contacts’: both face charges of crimes against humanity at the International Criminal Court. British officials say the invitation to Kenyatta to attend the Somalia Conference in London on 7 May and meet Cameron and other officials to discuss regional security are in the ‘essential’ category. Kenyan and international human rights groups disagree.
