President Uhuru Kenyatta has been showered with praises from all over the country after Kenya received an endorsement from the African Union to compete in the UN Security Council seat.
Kenya won the endorsement after defeating Djibouti in a voting session held at the African Union headquarters in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. The endorsement means Kenya becomes Africa’s sole candidate for the race for the non-permanent seat for 2021-2022.
President Uhuru has been crisscrossing the globe to lobby for endorsements in recent times.
Speaking after the event, Uhuru said that the country is better placed to secure the UN seat for the period 2020 to 2021 after its endorsement by the AU.
“I am grateful to the African Union’s PRC for the confidence they have shown by endorsing our candidature for the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) non-permanent seat,” said the President.
Many Kenyans have taken to social media to congratulate the president over his tireless effort in fighting for the country’s endorsement in the continent and globally.
