“All Lives Matter” Says Uhuru Kenyatta As He Negotiates Trade Deal With The US

Kenya’s president, Uhuru Kenyatta, has sent a message to those holding Black Lives Matter protests in the US and across the world that, “All lives matter, but there should not be any targeted oppression of any group in society.”

Kenya is negotiating a free trade agreement with the US government that a host of civil society organisations have maintained will be a disaster for the Kenyan economy. Their opposition has been tweeted under the hashtag #NoToKenyaUSFTA

President Kenyatta insists it would be a negotiation of equals despite the different economic and political power of the two countries.
