AlJazeeraEnglish | ‘I concede’: Kenyan President William Ruto will not sign finance bill ...


Kenyan President William Ruto says he will not sign a controversial bill that led to major protests. At least 23 people were reportedly killed on Tuesday, after MPs passed the legislation that would have raised taxes. In an address to the nation, the second in less than 24 hours, Ruto said it was clear that Kenyans "want nothing" to do with the bill. He has promised to open dialogue with young people who were the driving force of the protests to hear their grievances. He also said corruption is a matter that he will tackle.
