Kenyatta is charged with crimes against humanity allegedly committed during post-election violence in Kenya in 2007-2008.
The trial had earlier been scheduled to start in July, but the Court in April granted the Defence more time to prepare, owing to delays by the Prosecution in disclosing its evidence.
Kenyatta is charged, as an indirect co-perpetrator, with five counts of crimes against humanity consisting of murder, deportation or forcible transfer, rape, persecution and other inhumane acts.
He and his Deputy President William Ruto, who is also charged by the ICC, were elected in March this year, despite the allegations against them. They have so far appeared voluntarily before the Court in The Hague. ICC Prosecutor Fatou Bensouda has threatened to issue arrest warrants for them if they do not continue to do so.
