King Charles visits Kenya, regrets British violence in the country

King Charles III has embarked on his first State visit to Africa since ascending to the throne following Queen Elizabeth II’s death.

King Charles landed in Nairobi, Kenya on Tuesday accompanied by Queen Camilla. He was welcomed by President William Ruto at the State House.

Charles headed to Uhuru Gardens National Monument and Museum, where he laid a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Warrior.

A number Kenyans were waiting for Charles to formally apologise for the “acts of violence” that befell the people of Kenya during colonisation.

The royal couple also walked through the Tunnel of Martyrs, a visual retelling of the stories of those who died in a number of national events, including the independence struggle.
