UN Kenya ties improve
IT APPEARS that the strained relations between Kenya and the UN are on the mend following a fallout last year, in which the Kenyan commander of the UN Mission in South Sudan (Unmiss) was sacked.
A UN special investigation found that a lack of leadership by Kenya’s Lieutenant-General Johnson Mogoa Kimani Ondieki culminated in a “chaotic and ineffective response” during heavy fighting in Juba between July 8 and 11. As a result, many civilians lost their lives.
Following a meeting at the AU headquarters between Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta and UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, the situation was set to improve. – ANA
