Weeks after High Court bared president William Ruto’s Kenya Kwanza government from deploying policemen to Haiti, UN has finally issued a major update.
As relayed by a report covered on kenyans.co.ke, UN via the secretary general Stephanie Dujarric noted that the union is ready to support any multinational force that would be formed to address the ongoing Crisis in Haiti.
The report further adds that the discussion between Haiti and Kenya aren’t going through the union as the mission was initiated by them.
“We understand there are discussions between Haiti and Kenya. All these discussions are not going on through the UN, because it’s not a UN peacekeeping force”, report intimates
“There is a trust fund that was set up as part of the resolution. We hope to support whatever multinational force comes into being, and we hope that donors give generously so the force can be deployed as quickly as possible,” he stated.
This comes weeks after High Court agreed with Former presidential aspirant Ekuru Aukot who sought to block the move on grounds that National Security Council cannot deploy policemen out of the country.
The decision was backed by Azimio la Umoja one Kenya Coalition’s leaders led by former prime minister Raila Odinga.
