NASA is promising to strengthen the country’s ties with the UN in peace missions in the region.
The coalition promises to contribute, as well as, have its soldiers participate in the region’s peacekeeping efforts if it forms the next government.
“Kenya’s membership and active role in the UN will continue unabated. NASA government holds tenaciously to the view that the UN is the main global multilateral forum for international cooperation,” reads the coalition’s manifesto unveiled.
It adds: “NASA government shall cooperate fully with the UN to ensure regional and international peace and security.”
This pledge, however, seems to be a turnaround by the Opposition who have been criticising President Uhuru Kenyatta’s administration for not pulling out Kenya Defence Forces from Somalia.
Scores of Kenyan soldiers under African Union Mission to Somalia (Amisom) have been killed by terror group Al Shabaab.

NASA also pledges to support and recognise the role of Kenyans in the diaspora in the country’s economy, adding that missions abroad will be under direction to encourage those in the diaspora to invest at home.
“Aspects of our foreign policy shall focus on the Kenyans living abroad and who continue to support the economy through remittances,” pledges NASA.
