The Communist Party of Swaziland (CPS) condemns the police invasion of the headquarters of the Communist Party of Kenya and the consequent arbitrary arrest of Party workers and leaders in Nairobi on Wednesday morning, 7 April 2021. The Kenyan police were intent on breaking into the strong room where the Party keeps its crucial records. Both the invasion and arrests were conducted without court warrant.
The CPS stands in unconditional solidarity with the Communist Party of Kenya and the working class of that country in these difficult times, joins the Party in rejecting the irrational Covid-19 restrictions while demanding for more concrete support for the ordinary people. The anti-communist and anti-working class agenda is rife among many elite African leaders and is set to deepen as the revolutionary movement of the masses continues to grow. Many African leaders continue to dutifully play their puppet roles with distinction in the benefit of imperialism, a permanent enemy of the African peoples.
While the comrades have now been released on bail, set to appear in court on Friday, the CPS calls for more vigilance against the harassment of the Party and its members while they are out. We further call for deepened unity among the workers of the world in the fight against capitalism which is in its imperialist stage.
