Africa can solve its prob­lems, says Ruto

The Star (Kenya) - - Politics Presidency -

Deputy Pres­i­dent Wil­liam Ruto has called for re­forms at the United Na­tions Security Coun­cil to give Africa more rep­re­sen­ta­tion in it. He said ma­jor­ity of the UN’s de­ci­sions are about Africa and it will only make sense if the con­ti­nent is given more say to make de­ci­sions.

The DP said in­ter­ven­tions by the African Union in con­flicts around the con­ti­nent clearly in­di­cate Africa has the abil­ity to pro­vide home-grown so­lu­tions to the prob­lems it faces.

Ruto spoke yes­ter­day when he rep­re­sented Pres­i­dent Uhuru Keny­atta at the United Na­tions Great Lakes Peace, Security and Co­op­er­a­tion Sum­mit in Luanda, An­gola. He urged all part­ners to re­main com­mit­ted to­wards at­tain­ing the bench­marks set to re­alise long-term sta­bil­ity and devel­op­ment.
