The International Criminal Court is facing one of its biggest existential crises.
Earlier this month, the Court dropped its case against Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta; he had faced crimes against humanity for allegedly orchestrating violence after a 2007 presidential election.
And in the wake of the Kenyatta development, Uguandan President Yoweri Museveni called on African leaders to quit the Court all together.
But Senegalese Justice Minister Sidiki Kaba remains a defender of the Court, telling CNN's Christiane Amanpour that it has a "preventative" effect.

Militants from al-Qaeda's Somali offshoot, al-Shabaab, are in a continuing standoff with police at a Kenyan shopping mall – so what is their aim?
Christiane Amanpour spoke with CNN’s Nima Elbagir from on the ground in Nairobi.
“Their avowed aim – the aim that they speak about publicly,” Elbagir said, “is that they want to discourage the Kenyan public from supporting the Kenyan government and its continued presence in Somalia, where the Kenya defense forces are part of that African Union force helping to prop up the – we can call it still quite-shaky Somali government.”
“When Kenya went in,” she told Amanpour, “that was really when the tide turned against al-Shabaab.”
