United Nations Welcome to the United Nations. It's your world.

A message of gratitude from Amb. Lazarus Amayo

Friday, 19 June 2020


I take this opportunity to sincerely thank you colleagues and member states for the support and the voting in which you elected Kenya on 17 June 2020, to be a non-permanent (elected) member of the United Nations Security Council for the period 2021-2022. I have been overwhelmed by the expressions of support for this great honour you have accorded me and my country. We, therefore, accept this position with humility and promise to work with you in pushing the common agenda at the UNSC and priorities we had outlined.

Once again thank you, colleagues, for the support. Please accept this as my humble acknowledgement of the best wishes received in the WhatsApp Group.


Asante Sana

Amb. Lazarus Amayo

Permanent Representative
