~The Kenyan ruling class led by the handshake government in power today has run out of ideas of cheating Kenyans who are daily oppressed and exploited by their bankrupt system that only pushes the country deeper and deeper into political, economic and social crisis.
 
Everyday everywhere they sing about corruption yet they do nothing to take the culprits into prison or confiscate their wealth earned through corruption. The very word corruption is now used to hide the crimes committed by members of the ruling class. When millionaires steal billions they are arrested by the anti-corruption police, charged with corruption, given bail and their cases made to drag on until in many cases the criminals go free. Yet the ruling class in power continues chanting platitudes about fighting corruption.
 
On the other hand, when persons from the class of the poor steal, rob or commit fraud they are immediately arrested and put into custody and charged with the real crimes of theft, robbery, fraud and are sooner or later committed into prison. So the world corruption is being used to hide the theft, robbery and fraud committed by the ruling class and to give the impression that the government in power is committed to the war against the gross violations of public property involving billions or even trillions. 
 
But what is the root cause of this crime baptised as corruption by the ruling class in power in Kenya today? And is the ruling class capable of ending the crime? The answer is No! The ruling class of Kenya has neither the will nor the ability to end corruption. This is because the root cause of corruption is the capitalist system that dominates Kenyan economics, politics, culture, morality and psychology today. 
 
It is the system that encourages primitive accumulation of land, wealth and capital, where individuals and families accumulate thousands and thousands of acres of land which they don't need while there are millions of Kenyans who are landless and need the land for their survival and development. In this system of exploitation of person by person based on greed, individual families are proud to own billions and trillions which they are proud to display while millions of people wallow in poverty in urban areas or live a poor life in primitive lifestyles in the country. In this capitalist system people are actually starving and dying of hunger while the class in power politics about handshake and pushes the country deeper and deeper into foreign debt.
 
The rulers keep on parroting everyday about fighting corruption to deliberately cover their crimes. But the question is, who in the ruling class is not corrupt? Isn't the capitalist system based on exploitation of person by person not corruption? Isn’t robbing public property by the rich for the rich by privatising air and water ports, sugar industries, state parastatals etc. not corruption? Isn’t privatising essential services such schools, health facilities and housing and denying them to the poor while increasing the divide between the few rich and the majority poor not corruption? Isn’t teaching young persons to aspire for corrupt life styles and values of acquiring money at all costs rather than values of hard work, good morals and changing our country for the better based on communist values not corruption?
 
To the Kenyan ruling class today, the fight against corruption is just a song,
lie, platitude, drama and open impunity. How are people who are part and parcel of corruption be expected to lead the war against corruption successfully? What I am saying is that the fight against corruption in Kenya must be fought side by side with the fight against the capitalist system. CPK recognizes that corruption is ultimately the baby of capitalism and therefore to kill it we must target the mother, the capitalist system. We expose the lies of the ruling class in power that has neither the will nor the ability to remove the corruption monster. The building and strengthening of CPK and communist ideology in Kenya is the reliable and genuine path towards rooting out corruption in Kenya and elsewhere. Happy Easter comrades!~

With humility, sincerity and the love that I have for you as a people and nation, I wish at this time and date to remind and warn you that you have been fixed in a box by the reactionary leaders of Kenya, their capitalist ideology and socio-economic system. They use all means at their disposal, including but not limited to the press, tribalism, political meetings and all machinery of propaganda and control to ensure that you remain permanently fixed in the reactionary box they have deliberately designed for you to serve their interests.  Remember, however much you lament, cry, condemn, wish [ ... ]

The Communist Party of Kenya (CPK) condemns in the strongest terms the recent escalation of sanctions by the United States of America on the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela. The latest round of sanctions seek to freeze all the property and assets of the Venezuelan Government in the United States, and also to criminalise transactions with Venezuelan entities. This in other words means that the United States has decided to steal/rob the property and assets of the people of Venezuela for the period of these sanctions, and also to impose an economic, commercial and financial blockade against the [ ... ]
