Diversity of affairs will also be part of his agenda, which is the core goal of promoting nation-building and the pursuit of peace.
Kenya's presidency of the UN Security Council will be a critical moment on the international stage.

"In many countries, we are witnessing national fragility that leads to prolonged crises. This fragility is mainly due to the inability of countries to manage domestic diversity, thus providing radical and terrorist organizations with the opportunity to create social dissatisfaction and control in affected countries. Territorial opportunities.” President Kenyatta pointed out.
He added: “It turns out that the tools to deal with these crises are not sufficient; so we must work hard to improve their capabilities. The most important task we can undertake is to improve the country’s ability to manage its own political and social diversity.”
