On September 21, President William Ruto will deliver his first address to the UN General Assembly (UNGA) at the UN Headquarters in New York.
President Ruto is scheduled to address 193 presidents and heads of government at 9.pm (EAT), according to Martin Kimani, the ambassador of Kenya to the UN.
The address, according to Ambassador Kimani, won’t be about the president; rather, it will concentrate on how he would represent Kenyan issues on the international stage. Kenyans can see the address live, he disclosed.
“A date with the world. President will deliver Kenya’s National Statement at 2p.m New York time (9 pm local time),” the Ambassador wrote.
The President will advocate for other countries to negotiate diplomatic pacts with Kenya in accordance with its foreign policy.
By contributing to the effort to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and take the lead globally on pressing issues like climate change, he will strengthen existing relationships.
Dr. Ruto is in New York for the UN General assembly meeting. He is expected to meet the US President, Joe Biden, later for bilateral talks.
