Spokesperson for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Nebiyat Getachew said Kenya is soliciting for support from African countries for the non-permanent membership. The UNSC has five permanent members – China, France, Russia, U.S.A, and UK, and 10 non-permanent members elected for two-year terms by the General Assembly. Kenya was elected as non-permanent member of the UNSC in 1973 and 1997.
