King Charles visits Kenya, says ‘no excuses’ for colonial abuses

King Charles has acknowledged the “abhorrent and unjustifiable acts of violence committed against Kenyans” during their independence struggle.

On his state visit to Kenya, the King addressed the “wrongdoings” of Britain’s colonial era.

He told a state banquet in Nairobi of his “greatest sorrow and regret” and that there was “no excuse”.

But the King did not deliver a formal apology – which would have to be decided by government ministers.

In response, Kenya’s President William Ruto praised the King’s courage for addressing such “uncomfortable truths”.

The Kenyan head of state told the King that colonial rule had been “brutal and atrocious to African people” and that “much remains to be done in order to achieve full reparations”.
