The United Nations (UN) Secretary-General António Guterres has landed in Kenya for a two-day official visit.

Guterres was received at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) on Wednesday, May 3, 2023, by Foreign Affairs Cabinet Secretary Dr Alfred Mutua.

Mutua announced that Guterres will meet President William Ruto and hold talks on security and humanitarian situation in Sudan.

In response to the allegations, the spokesperson for Secretary-General Stephane Dujarric said that the chat was taken out of context, and does not reflect Mohammed’s opinion.

“The distorted and out-of-context reporting of Deputy Secretary-General Amina Mohammed’s private conversations does not in any way reflect her views and opinions. Throughout her career, she has been an unimpeachable, strong voice for Africa and its leadership on the international scene,” Dujarric said.

“The Deputy Secretary-General has full confidence and respect for the leadership of President William Ruto and looks forward to travelling to Nairobi later this month for a previously scheduled trip. She looks forward to meeting with the President of Kenya and the UN leadership. Kenya has been through the decades and continues to be a very generous host to UN institutions and a very important contributor to the international agenda,” Dujarric added.

The chit-chat between Guterres and Mohammed was leaked by an unidentified man in his mid-20s who at some point worked in a military base.

The unidentified man posted the leaks in a social media group under Discord — an instant messaging social platform.
