UNCTAD: President Uhuru Kenyatta calls for UN reforms.

President Kenyatta challenged the UN to institute reforms to make it a more inclusive organisation. He said it is unfortunate that when Africa is becoming more transparent and accountable, the rest of the world, which has benefitted from globalisation, is retreating. He said the global community has to translate goals into actual objectives to meet the real demands of the people. ADVERTISEMENT ADVERTISEMENT President Uhuru Kenyatta has said African nations need partnerships for them to achieve their development goals and not patronage, especially from international organisations. He said multilateral agencies including the United Nations organisations have to work with national governments and local civil societies to get solutions to challenges facing the continent. He called for a reformed United Nations to make it more effective. President Kenyatta challenged the UN to adopt required reforms so that it can become a more inclusive organisation. He said the UN would be more successful in solving conflicts if it worked through national governments and leaders to resolve disputes arising in respective regions of the globe. “The UN spends billions of dollars on peacekeeping missions in the Democratic Republic of Congo, Somalia and South Sudan, but after spending all these billions what impact do they have?” asked the President. The President was speaking during the second day of the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) in Nairobi.
