Kenya’s Cabinet has granted initial approval for the deployment of 1,000 police officers to lead a multinational peacekeeping mission addressing gang violence in Haiti.
However, the mission’s progress is contingent on final approval from the Kenyan parliament.
Haiti has witnessed a significant uptick in violence from January to August, with over 2,400 reported deaths, 950 kidnappings, and 902 injuries.
While the United Nations Security Council had sanctioned the deployment, Kenya’s high court imposed a delay, awaiting a challenge’s resolution.
Domestic controversy surrounds Kenya’s participation, but U.S. funding and a commitment to support Haiti drive the Kenyan-led effort, currently awaiting parliament’s decision.
