The Executive Council and Members of African Public Relations Associations (APRA) have condoled with Kenyans on the recent crisis that happened in the Republic of Kenya.

APRA expressed its condolence in a statement issued by the association’s Secretary-General, Dr. Omoniyi Ibietan, on Wednesday.

The statement read in part: “we stand in solidarity with our colleagues in the Public Relations Society of Kenya (PRSK).

“We urge the Government of Kenya to put the people of Kenya first and in a show of conversational capacity as already indicated by the Presidency, undertake stakeholder consultations with empathy and an openness to reconciliation.

“We commiserate with the families of those who died and wish a speedy recovery to those injured during the protests. We fervently pray for the repose of the souls of the deceased”.

Kenyan President William Ruto said Wednesday that a bill containing contentious tax hikes would “be withdrawn”, dramatically reversing course after more than 20 people died and parliament was ransacked by protesters opposed to the legislation.
