SUPKEM urges gov’t to support Palestine cause at UN



The Supreme Council of Kenya Muslims (SUPKEM) has urged the government to declare its stand on whether it supports Palestine gaining full membership of the United Nations.

Addressing the media in Mombasa, SUPKEM Deputy Chair Muhdar Sharif said Kenya has been silent on the issue despite nations making their stand on whether to support the cause or not.

According to Shariff, Kenya is missing an opportunity to show solidarity with a human cause by supporting the membership of Palestine at the UN.

He also urged President William Ruto to support the bid on humanitarian grounds.

“We call upon President Ruto and the Prime Cabinet Secretary Musalia Mudavadi to ensure Kenya votes in favor of the critical resolution,” he said.

He further called upon Kenyans to show support to Palestinians whom he said are oppressed.

“We urge all Kenyans to lend their support to the Palestinians in aligning the principles of law, justice, and peace to human rights,” he added.
