UN Kenya ties im­prove

The Star Early Edition - - WORLD -

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
