Kenya says it will use its position on the UN Security Council to push ideas useful to Africa.

But some experts say it should propose reforms at the UN’s most powerful organ.

Friday, Foreign Affairs Cabinet Secretary Raychelle Omamo said Kenya will be returning to the Council after 23 years, with many new issues affecting the world. But she indicated that Kenya will give priority to issues affecting Africa.

“We shall have our eyes firmly fixed on Africa, including the situation in Somalia, Darfur, Central African Republic, Great Lakes, Sahel and other regions of our continent that need special attention,” she told journalists in Nairobi yesterday.

The areas she mentioned are some of Africa’s most active conflict zones, which have previously been the subject of the council’s resolutions.

“Kenya will have an opportunity to shape the global agenda and ensure that our interests and the interests of Africa are heard and considered. We now have a voice at one of the most important decision making forums,” she added.
