Kenyan president says Haiti mission to go ahead despite court ruling

Updated: May 15

Kenya is going to push ahead with plans to lead a U.N.-approved security mission to Haiti, the Kenyan President told the press on Tuesday following an Italian-Africa summit.

"So that mission can go ahead as soon as next week," William Ruto said in Rome, despite a court in Nairobi last week blocking the deployment .

"The mission is on course. The mission is a bigger calling to humanity," Ruto said, stressing that it was a police rather than a military operation.

Asked if discussions were underway with Haiti to get the necessary request, Ruto said: "Absolutely. Haiti has actually written formally, not today, several months ago."
