Share

President Lungu has congratulated His Excellency Mr. Uhuru Kenyatta, following Kenya’s election to serve as a member of the United Nations Security Council for the period 2021-2022 in the non-permanent category.

The President in his congratulatory message to Mr Kenyatta said: “It is with a great sense of satisfaction that I offer my congratulations, following the election of the Republic of Kenya to serve as a member of the United Nations Security Council for the period 2021-2022 in the non-permanent category.”

The President notes that Zambia has persistently supported the Kenyan candidature out of conviction, given Kenya’s positive record and its ongoing contribution to the African continent’s agenda within the multilateral framework.

“We also note the sacrifices that Kenya has made in its quest to bring peace to its neighbouring countries. I have no doubt that your country will once again rise to the challenges of this coveted and onerous responsibility of representing Africa on the UN Security Council,” reads part of the message.

The President said Zambia is proud to be a long-standing member and supporter of the United Nations and is confident that the election of Kenya will add to the impetus of promoting peace and harmony among Member States.

“Please accept, Your Excellency and dear brother, my best wishes on this occasion and the assurances of my highest consideration,” President Lungu writes.

  1. You travel to Northern Province from what is called work and instead of working you start talking about your opponent. Does he really have advisors or he is deaf to advice.

  2. It’s not an achievement. This is tokenism at best as it comes with no veto power and is a rotating membership that no country makes any effort to assume. Even the congratulatory message is sent just in case u might need Kenya’s support on an international matter in future. So u send a message to stroke their ego.

  3. Excellent stuff from our brothers in the north east. We are all brothers and sisters on the continent and all elders are my parents too. This is our culture and we support each other unlike the brain washed inferior complex suffering diasporans. Just read their comments above. They would rather chastise their fellow African and support and lick the behind of their white imperial who consider them inferior blacks.

  5. Sometimes he should just keep quiet and this thing of wanting to be heard first is annoying.

    It was not lomg ago when he should contravetial condolences to Burundi people and deleted it the following day.

    He should just keep quiet sometimes.

    PF must go!

  6. Congratulations to Kenya. But what Africa needs is a permanent seat. Mugabe fought for Africa to have one but alas he did not succeed and now only museven is our last hope otherwise the rest of the leaders are just ma yes bwana.

  10. No African country is fit for permanent membership of the UN Security Council. It’s a tough job to ensure that the world doesn’t disintegrate into chaos. Museveni has succeeded Mugabe as a long-ruling despot. He carries no weight in polite society.

  11. Time is moving too fast for PF but for us the downtrodden, poor n hungry , time is moving too slow. Come quickly August, we tired of suffering.

  12. Congrats Kenya but any UNSC seat secured by African countries are just for ego coz we have no real power , economic ,military ,diplomatic or otherwise.

  13. Respct our Leader please if you have nothing to comment just keep quit other wise uzamwiziba yesu one day.

  14. Ne fishili fya ku congratulator. Africans! How will this develop Kenya? Its just a time wasting role that doesnt benefit any peasant in Mombasa or Solwezi
