President Uhuru Kenyatta arrived in New York on Sunday for a two-day working visit of the US during which he is scheduled to chair a United Nations Security Council (UNSC) high-level open debate on diversity, state building and peace.
Having assumed her position as a non-permanent member of the UN Security Council on 1st of January this year for a two-year period, Kenya currently holds the monthly rotational presidency of the Council for October 2021.
According to Kenya’s Permanent Representative to the UN Amb Martin Kimani, Kenya's overriding agenda at the UN Security Council is to offer ideas and solutions to global peace and security in areas such as the Horn of Africa and the troubled Sahel region.
“The Security Council is a body that has the mandate to solve major challenges, but for many reasons has been unable to do so. We have ideas on how to do that, we have experience in building peace in our region and we bring those ideas and perspectives to the Council.
Here are some of the reactions:
Justice Justice: We are grateful as a nation. Thank you your Excellency. God bless you for promoting peace in the country.
Davis Mystery: His excellence has been working tirelessly all round the clock to fix our social, political and economic issues. May God bless you and Keep you healthy.

Hopefully after the debate, his excellency will shake afew powerful hands 🤝 and get to bring every neighbour that connives to intimidate our nation to their rightful place.
