PM May’s Visit to Kenya Confirms the 21st Century Scramble for Africa

Sharing is Supporting Islam

Press Release

British Prime Minister Theresa May concluded her African trip with a visit to Kenya on Thursday, 30 August 2018. Before her arrival in Kenya, she had visited South Africa on Tuesday and Nigeria on Wednesday. Her visit was the first in five years in sub-Saharan Africa and second in 30-years to Kenya by a British Prime Minister since 1988 by Margaret Thatcher. The visit comes at a time when UK is about to officially relinquish EU’s membership by 29 March 2019. Her message across Africa has been the expansion of business frontiers and fortifying existing ones.

Regarding the visit, we, in Hizb ut Tahrir / Kenya, state the following:

Their trade deals that May and Kenyatta discussed and agreed are nothing but the expansion of colonial avenues to plunder Kenyan resources and entrench the secular capitalist economic system that has left Kenya’s economy on its knees and condemned the citizens to despicable poverty and miserable living conditions. The only beneficiary of the trade deals forever-remain a few amongst the elites and their coterie of opportunists surrounding them from the private-public sector. With Kenya acting as a desperate consumer market and dumping site for British goods and services and at the same time providing cheap and desperate labor for UK multinationals.

Their security partnership to fight terrorism is nothing but an extension of Britain’s deep-hatred against Islam since Britain was the mastermind in the destruction of the Khilafah (Caliphate) on 28 Rajab 1342AH I 3 March 1924CE. Furthermore, PM May’s atrocious viewpoint against Islam is confirmed by her stint as Home Secretary and which will add impetus to Kenyan regime to continue in its fight locally against extremism (strict adherence to Islam) and militarily in Somalia against Al Shabaab using KDF and AMISOM.

Their agreement on corruption is merely a fallacy and a spit on the face of the Kenyan people. Britain is the chief-looter of Kenyan resources and continues to do so via her colonial agent rulers who implement her invalid secular capitalist ideology and the systems emanating from it including her political and socio-economic policies, which have left Kenya in development stagnation since 1963!

With regard to the so-called common understanding on the Building Bridges process is a confirmation that indeed Britain has cunningly acknowledged the compromise between herself and the US via their political agents locally. Hence, Britain has gotten some breath in order to plan for their next maneuvering against US for total control of Kenya.

In Conclusion: We in Hizb ut Tahrir / Kenya view this visit as just an elaborate strategy by Britain to revamp her global deteriorated stature especially in Africa where China is using its ‘soft power’, US is using its ‘counter-terror initiatives’ and future EU using its ‘initial trade pacts’ to woo her former colonies. Nothing has been achieved apart from Britain maintaining its master-slave relationship between Kenya and herself.
