Kenya to launch UNSC bid Thursday

Kenya will formally launch its candidature for the Non-Permanent seat at the United Nations Security Council Thursday in New York USA.

Kenya made history as the first East African country to secure the endorsement of the African Union for the seat during a vote conducted in August this year.

Kenya will need the support of at least two-thirds of the countries voting in the June 2020 poll.

The launch will be done Thursday, November 7th in New York, USA. The United Nations Security Council plays a key role in international affairs such as maintaining international peace and security and can impose sanctions and authorization of military action when international peace is threatened.

Kenya made history as the first East African country to secure the endorsement of the African Union for the seat reserved for african nations during a vote conducted in August this year.

Kenya trounced Djibouti after garnering 37 of the 52 votes cast in the second round of voting.

Kenya has put up a well-crafted strategy to win the support of the international community to get the United Nations Security Council non-permanent seat ahead of the June 2020 vote which will be conducted in New York.
