Kenya’s envoy to UN cites colonial past as he condemns Russian move into Ukraine

Kenya has delivered an emphatic plea to Russia to pursue diplomacy, citing its own history. While addressing the UN Security Council, Kenya’s Ambassador to the UN, Martin Kimani, said, ‘This situation echoes our history. Kenya and almost every African country was birthed by the ending of empire. Our borders were not of our own drawing,’ He further told the Security Council, ‘Today across the border of every single African country live our countrymen with whom we share deep bonds.’

The speech is being described as one of the best speeches delivered at the forum in recent years.
