Julius Malema, the leader of South Africa’s opposition Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) party, has criticized President William Ruto for failing to fulfill his election promises to Kenyans.
Malema, who is in Kenya to launch the Pan African Institute at Lukenya University, expressed disappointment in Ruto’s actions as the current Head of State, stating that they are inconsistent with the promises he made during the election.
“He said so many things, and I can’t locate him these days, because the things he said during the election and the things he’s doing now are two different things,” Malema said.
He also criticized Ruto for hosting Britain’s King Charles III, stating that the visit served no significance if the King did not offer a direct apology to the Kenyan people over the atrocities committed by British soldiers during the colonial era.
Malema called on the Kenyan government to decide whether they want to be proponents of neocolonialism or embrace Pan Africanism, urging them to stay true to the course and to remind Britain of the injustices committed against Kenya.
