On Monday, Kenya commemorated 59 years of freedom from British colonial rule (Dec. 12).

William Ruto, Kenya’s fifth president, praised those who assisted in the country’s liberation from British colonialism nearly 60 years ago as valiant guardians of its “sovereignty.”

Speaking in Nairobi, Ruto claimed that the country had made great strides since gaining its independence.

As we enter our sixth decade of independence, he declared, “We can proudly cite many achievements and impressive progress made through our own consistent efforts as evidence that our freedom fight was neither an empty political adventure nor a reactionary born of idle resentment.”

He also said, “We come together as a nation to commune with our forefathers who were long suffering innocent victims of imperial plunder and colonial oppression, but also heroic champions of unassailable sovereignty and brave defenders of our freedom.

We are utilizing our position as a regional anchor state for the benefit of our neighbors and region under various regional and continental frameworks and with the assistance of international partners, “said Ruto.
