Capital FM: Kenya sways Mexico ITU meet

GUADALAJARA, Mexico, Oct 13 - It was a double success for Kenya on Tuesday as the country was elected to two key positions in a specialised United Nations Agency.

Kenya was picked to the International Telecommunication Union’s (ITU) Council and the Radio Regulation Board (RRB) during the ongoing ITU’s 18th Plenipotentiary Conference in Guadalajara, Mexico.

The country, which has served in the Council since her first election in 1982, garnered 119 votes out of 161 eligible voting Member States, to return the second highest tally behind Egypt in Region D (Africa).

“Kenya is headed for great things and by supporting each other and working as a team we can achieve anything we put our mind to,” Information and Communications Minister Samuel Poghisio said while congratulating the members.
