‘We won’t let people of Haiti down’ – Kenya’s president

Kenya’s President William Ruto is happy that the UN Security Council has agreed to send a group of Kenyan police to help in Haiti.

He said they promised to help the people of Haiti and added that the mission was very important and urgent for Kenya.

On Monday, the UN agreed to a plan that allows them to help the police in Haiti fight against dangerous gangs. These gangs have taken over many areas of the country and are causing fear among the people living there. They have also caused the deaths of many people.

Mr Ruto believes that the situation in Haiti needs to be addressed with compassion and cooperation from everyone.

During our difficult times, we did not have many powerful allies, but we did have friends who were true, loyal, and determined. The people of Haiti, who are our close friends, currently require assistance. We have a basic moral duty to truly be their friend and support them,” he said.

However, some people who disagree or have negative thoughts have spoken out against the mission and the capability of Kenyan police to fight against Haiti’s gangs.

The former chief justice of Kenya, Willy Mutunga, said on a BBC radio show that it was against the law to send officers without asking the Kenyan people first about an important issue.

Amnesty International wants a careful review of the human rights and humanitarian consequences of the mission before it is sent.
