Kenya beats Djibouti to win African vote to seek UN Security Council Seat

Kenya has been nominated as a candidate for UN Security Council seat after defeating Djibouti in a vote held at the African Union headquarters in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

The endorsement means Kenya becomes Africa’s sole candidate for the race for the non-permanent seat for 2021-2022.

In a secret ballot on Wednesday morning, Nairobi garnered 37 votes against Djibouti’s 13 in a second round of voting in which 51 of the 55 AU member states were present.

In the first round, Kenya missed the two-thirds majority threshold after winning 34 votes against Djibouti’s 15 with two abstentions.

There was no abstentions in the second round of voting.  This news is something to be proud of as a country and Kenyans should celebrate for this achievement.
