He said for many years Kenya has been a home for many millions who have fled from their own countries due to insecurity. 

“Kenya has always recognized the need for a peaceful resolution to conflicts and being at peace with her neighbour’s and has always been a safe haven for many millions who have fled percussion in their own countries," said Uhuru.

President Uhuru has added by saying as a country we need to take the advantage of the one month of our UN presidency to continue pursuing the African agenda and diaspora agenda.

“We need to be able to take advantage of this month of our presidency to continue to pursue the African agenda and diaspora agenda and also help us to resolve issues that affect our continent, issues like climate change," said the President.

Kenya still has a two-year stint as a member of the United Nations Security Council.

On his meeting with US President Joe Biden, Kenyatta has said they will discuss several agendas including how to strengthen economy and security corporations, strengthening trade and investment links for the mutual benefits of the two nations.

“The meeting with President Biden will be about strengthening our economical & security corporations & also strengthen our trade & investment linkages for the mutual benefit for the two nations," asserted the head of state.

Uhuru also called for unity among the African countries saying much more can be achieved if the continent works as a whole.  

 “We are able to achieve more as Africa if we work together…if we work together, our voices would be much stronger and have a powerful voice…we need to stitch the voices together," Uhuru said.

At the same time, Kenyatta has urged the European countries that manufacturers the COVID-19 vaccine to share with African countries that have only vaccinated 5 per cent of its demography.

“It had been a vaccine apartheid, when you have countries and owners of the vaccine hoarding, injecting their people with three injections as booster whereas most of our countries are less than 5 per cent of the people who have been injected," said Uhuru.
