United Nations to expand its operations in Kenya, President Ruto praises the move

President William Ruto has said Kenya is honoured by the decision of the United Nations to expand its operations in the country.

He said the move confirms Kenya’s strategic position not only in the region but also globally.

“We will do whatever it takes to ensure that the new facility commences and is completed within the schedule set by the UN,” he said.

The facility will include a 9,000-capacity conference centre and state-of-the-art offices.

The President was speaking on Wednesday at State House Nairobi when he hosted the Director-General of the United Nations Office Nairobi (UNON) Zainab Hawa Bangura.

Ms Bangura said the project will be completed within 18 months.

“We will put up a modern facility that will meet international expectations. This will change the face of Nairobi and Kenya in general,” she noted.
