Kenyan President Withdraws Tax Hikes Amid Protests

todayJune 27, 2024 5

Background
share close

Kenyan President William Ruto withdrew planned tax hikes on Wednesday, succumbing to pressure from protesters who stormed parliament, launched nationwide demonstrations, and threatened further action this week, reports Reuters. This move is seen as a significant victory for the week-old, youth-led protest movement, which evolved from online condemnations of the tax increases into mass rallies demanding a political overhaul. This marks the most serious crisis of Ruto’s two-year presidency.
