Isaac Mwaura Discloses Foreign Countries Funding Anti-Finance Bill Protests

Amos Khaemba, a journalist at TUKO.co.ke, brings over three years of experience covering politics and current affairs in Kenya.

Nairobi - Government Spokesperson Isaac Mwaura has linked foreign players to the ongoing anti-Finance Bill 2024 protests.

In a statement on Saturday, June 22, Mwaura claimed powerful international players financing Gen-Z protests against the Finance Bill 2024.

According to Mwaura, those sponsoring the protests are unhappy with President Willia Ruto's recent stand on international matters.

Mwaura pointed out that Ruto's recent statement regarding Russia's invasion of Ukraine is one of the reasons foreign powers were funding the demos

He also claimed Ruto’s efforts to end reliance on the United States dollar as the main currency for international trade were another reason powerful foreign countries were sponsoring the protests.

"Our president has said a lot of things on the international front, including climate change. He has rallied the whole of Africa to come together, and maybe some people are not happy.

The other day he talked about the Russian invasion and how it has disrupted Kenya's access to grains and wheat, some people are not happy with that. He has been calling for a change in the financial architecture; they don’t want us to get out of that slavery," Mwaura said.
