‘The people have spoken’: Why did Kenya’s Ruto reject tax bill he pushed?
Quick Glance: William Ruto withdraws Kenya finance bill after deadly protests
  • Kenya's President William Ruto announces the withdrawal of a finance bill containing controversial tax hikes after deadly protests that led to the parliament being set on fire on Tuesday.

  • Ruto stated that he would not sign the bill into law, acknowledging that Kenyans clearly reject the legislation.

  • After initially resisting, Ruto yielded and committed to engaging in dialogue with the youth who were at the forefront of the country's largest protests since his election in 2022.

  • The president defended the bill as part of efforts to reduce the country's massive debt burden of over $80 billion but ultimately withdrew it following public pressure.
