RT. HON RAILA ODINGA ON KENYA’S ELECTION TO THE UN SECURITY COUNCIL:
Kenya’s election to the U.N Security Council this evening marks one of the brightest points of our engagement with the world. It is also a bold manifestation that with solidarity, Africa, which backed Kenya, can have its way on the global stage.

This vote is also a major statement on how this country has presented itself to the world, as a nation determined to find home grown solutions to challenges to peace, stability and prosperity and in the process provide a pragmatic example to the rest of the world.

We are grateful for the great vote of confidence by the global community. Our challenge now is to work even harder as a nation and Africa’s representative to deliver on the expectations of the Continent that backed us and the global community that agreed. I am confident that Kenya shall not disappoint.

Congratulations to the team at Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Nairobi, our strong team at the UN Mission in New York and our government for the formidable campaign. Our work of sustaining multilateralism in an increasingly polarized world is clearly cut out.
H.E Raila Odinga, EGH.
