July 5, 2024 Statement from the Central Organising Committee of the Communist Party of Kenya Fellow Kenyans, The time has come for us to complete the mission we began with our protests. William Ruto and his regime, along with their local collaborators and international financiers, have shown their true colours. They promise reform but deliver nothing of substance. Let us be clear: Ruto will not change unless we force him to. This illegitimate government, birthed from fraud, tribal mobilisation, and the dirty money of global organised crime, cannot be allowed to stand. The recent protests h [ ... ]

This disingenuous capitulation comes only after Ruto ordered the brutal murder of more than 10 confirmed protesters and unleashed death squads to massacre more innocent lives in Githurai.  We must not allow Ruto  [ ... ]

Following this brutality, there was another attack on the most vulnerable in Nairobi's Githurai, where numerous poor residents were murdered in cold blood, their bodies still unaccounted for. Prior to this, countless activists, revolutionaries, and social media influencers were kidnapped by the  [ ... ]

  Statement by the Communist Party of Kenya, Unmasking Ruto’s Betrayal and Mobilizing for Kenya’s Sovereignty and Justice   The Communist Party of Kenya vehemently condemns President Ruto's recent actions, which expose his true allegiance as a subservient agent of Western imperialism. His visit to Washington and address at the G7 summit confirm beyond doubt that he is held captive by the foreign forces that facilitated his ascent to power. This is no longer speculation but a glaring fact: President Ruto is a puppet of the Western ruling class, betraying the Kenyan people at every turn [ ... ]
