Press Statement

US pressure has been increasingly heard here in Kenya for a period of two months now. It was September 25th this year when the US administration issued a threat to impose a travel ban threat targeting 15 prominent Kenyan officials including some ministers and MPs. On 26th October last week, US assistant secretary of state in charge of African affairs, Johnnie Carson, said that the USA has banned a senior Kenyan official from visiting that country. In addition the U.S. ambassador to Kenya Michael Ranneberger has been seen on popular TV screens every day threatening the Kenyan leadership; likewise he is seen in almost every corner of the country organizing public meetings (barazas) and giving advice as if he is the governor of this country giving orders like a teacher ordering the nursery school children!

The reason for the US pressure on Kenyan government is to demand it to hasten in bringing the so called ‘reforms'. It also believes that there are some figures in the government who block the reforms. The US is still maintaining that she is a best friend to Kenya and will be on the frontline to ensure that Kenya is heading to good governance which will bring a better life to her citizens. These pressures have been received by the Kenyan leaders with different reactions and viewpoints with some maintaining that it is a positive move by America to ensure justice, while others condemn it saying that it is wrong for it to interfere in internal Kenyan affairs.

Since the collapse of the communist ideology in the early nineties of the 20th century, an ideology that had been propagated by the Soviet Union, the US became impatient to rule the whole world by implementing her deceitful ideology called Capitalism. Ever since then her foreign policy is based upon implementing this ideology globally. As the case here in Kenya and Africa in general, her main objective is to exploit the rich resources of the continent via colonizing it economically. In addition to that, America wants to ensure that Africa is fully adopting and implementing its evil and catastrophic system. Thus it should be kept in mind that America will never change her foreign policy, though the change in her means and style can be noticed. Johnnie Carson stated this explicitly in his confirmation hearing to be appointed as US Assistant secretary for African affairs before the US Senate early this year. Therefore U.S interference in Kenyan internal issues is nothing other than a means to demand it to faithfully serve and protect US economic, political, defense and diplomatic interests and to make Kenya subservient to her ideology which is the primary source of all crises found in the world today. In short America is still carrying the neo-colonialism policy here in Kenya and Africa in general, not too dissimilar to the old British colonial rule where the British government used to govern Kenya in her own interests while stepping upon the local people without fear!  

Hizb ut-Tahrir is an Islamic party which aims to bring the fundamental change through implementation of the Islamic ideology fully in life via re-establishment of the Islamic State, Khilafah "Caliphate" Rashidah, which possesses a superior foreign policy which includes inviting people to Islam via a diplomatic approach. In the past, people of different nations were convinced by the Islamic ideology to the extent that many of them used to call to and demand for the Khilafah "Caliphate" State to come to their lands and deliver the from the oppression of the states ruling over them. We firmly believe that the Khilafah "Caliphate" State is the only one which is capable to uproot/demolish the American colonialism and cut off the tongue of America in the whole world today, and this Khilafah "Caliphate" State will soon be established by Allah's permission.

 We conclude this statement by calling upon all Muslims to fulfill their Islamic duty to expose the malicious plans of the US and her allies, and at the same time to work together with Hizb ut-Tahrir East Africa in conveying Islam as the true alternative ideology that will liberate Africa from western colonialism
