On arrival, the president held talks with UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres in which among other issues of global importance, the crises in Haiti and the Ethiopian Tigray region were discussed.
The president also witnessed the signing of a detailed trade agreement between Kenya and the United States of America.
This is the second time that a Kenyan head of State is heading a UN Security Council, the first time was 20 years ago when Daniel Arap Moi was president. The session that president Uhuru will be heading is scheduled for Tuesday 12th October and is one of the most important as it will be discussing diversity, state-building and peace.
"Africa has returned to its position in global leadership", president Uhuru said as he took over the mantle of chairman of the UN Security Council. Other important matters on the president's log will be prepared for the COP-26 meeting to be held in Glasgow, Scotland later in the year.
Meanwhile back home the disquiet fomented by a section of politicians allied to Deputy President Dr. William Ruto over the leaked Pandora Papers has fizzled out with the focus now on who will deputize for ODM Party leader Raila Amollo Odinga in his yet-to-be-declared presidential candidacy.
