Kenya on Wednesday hosted a seminar on the centenary of the Communist Party of China (CPC).
Chinese Ambassador to Kenya Zhou Pingjian, senior government officials, scholars and students attended the forum to mark the 100th anniversary of the founding of the CPC under the theme of ‘Governance and Experience.’
At the seminar, organized by the University of Nairobi, the country’s oldest educational institution, Zhou said that under the leadership of the CPC, China has been able to achieve phenomenal economic, technological, and industrial feats besides rallying the masses toward the ideals of peace and harmonious co-existence.
He said the CPC is ready to strengthen exchanges with political parties of other countries, share experience in governing the party and state, conduct exchanges and dialogue among civilizations, and work with people of all countries to build a community with a shared future for mankind and build a better world.
In their remarks, the Kenyan participants congratulated the CPC on the 100th anniversary of its founding and spoke highly of the CPC leading the Chinese people in creating the miracle of economic and social development.
John Mutinda Mutiso, director of international relations with Kenya’s ruling Jubilee Party, applauded the CPC “for delivering happiness to the people through consistent leadership and hard work.” He said that as the ruling party of Kenya, the Jubilee Party highly agrees with the ruling philosophy of the CPC, which is people-centered and people-first, as well as the determination and actions of the CPC to comprehensively promote strict party governance, which are the key to the CPC’s ability to lead China towards rejuvenation.
