Intimate Details Of Jeff Koinange's 1 Week Special Assignment in USA

Renowned Citizen TV news anchor Jeff Mwaura Koinange, is currently on a week-long special assignment in the United States of America.

Jeff Koinange flew out of the country on a direct flight from Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) to John F. Kennedy International Airport on Sunday, October 10.

The renowned journalist will be based in New York City and at the United Nations Headquarters in the coming few days.

Jeff is on a special assignment to cover President Uhuru Kenyatta, who takes up the rotating head of the UN Security Council in October. 

Kenya last presided over a Security Council meeting 23 years ago, during the presidency of late President Daniel Arap Moi.

The journalist will focus on subject topics that President Uhuru would address while in the United States, such as Afghanistan, Somalia, Haiti, vaccines, and boosting Kenya's bilateral ties with the United States.

The country's agenda at the Security Council, according to Kenya's Permanent ambassador to the United Nations, Ambassador Martin Kimani, is to contribute ideas and solutions for global peace.

Jeff Koinange who is the lone Kenyan journalist covering the major event, has already observed Uhuru's bilateral talks with UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres.

The Security Council, which Uhuru chairs, is one of the most prestigious roles in the United Nations, making critical decisions that influence how different countries respond to a variety of global challenges.

President Kenyatta has assured world leaders that Kenya is an active participant in global decision-making. He also advocated for other African countries to be given priority in decision-making.
