President William Ruto officially welcomed King Charles III and Queen Camilla to Kenya on Tuesday, October 31.
In his speech during the State Baquet, the King indirectly apologized to Kenyans for the atrocities committed on Kenyans by the British.
He expressed ‘deepest regret’ for ‘unjustifiable acts of violence’ during British rule in Kenya.
“It matters greatly to me that I should deepen my understanding of these wrongs, and that I meet some of those whose lives and communities were so grievously affected,” the King stated.
However, Sky News Host Andrew Bolt has blasted King Charles III for apologizing to Kenyans.
While hosting the Bolt Report show, the Australian show host stated that King Charles III did not have to apologize for atrocities committed by colonialists.
Bolt said that Kenyans benefited more than the colonialists hence there was no need for the King to apologise.
He said Kenya benefited more including learning English and that the country would not be where it is now if there were no Britains.
“There are bad things we did, but there are also good things that we did. We gave you democracy even if Kenya does not always live up to it as it should,
“We gave you the gifts of the English language. I have been to Kenya and I look around and think that if the British hadn’t been there, then it wouldn’t have been good as it is,” he stated.
