President Uhuru Kenyatta has appealed to the President of the United Nations General Assembly, Mr Peter Thomson, on the need for the UN to increase funding for the efforts to stabilise Somalia.

The duo met in Nairobi on Monday.

President Kenyatta said the UN should do more to support the African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM) so that the force can play a bigger role in supporting the government of Somalia and neutralise the terrorist threats in the country.

Bomb attacks and assassinations of high profile government officials have been on the rise in recent years.

The President said the UN also needs to give more funds to the government of Somalia so that it can do more to ensure the safety of its people.

He said the European Union has supported AMISOM forces and the UN should do more to help Somalia.

“The EU has worked hard and its work is appreciated but ultimately the UN has a responsibility to support the mission,” said the President.

President Kenyatta’s comments come ahead of the Third London Conference on Somalia, which he is scheduled to attend on May 11th.

President Kenyatta also spoke about the security situation in South Sudan and told Mr Thomson that the United Nations Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS) needs to be reorganised and realigned to meet its responsibility effectively.

“This should be done as soon possible in order to set the pace for the process of stabilising South Sudan,” said the President.

The meeting took place on the sidelines of the 26th Session of the Governing Council of UN-Habitat at Gigiri, Nairobi.
