Kenya retracts statement about severing ties with the Sahrawi people
Kenya has clarified its position on the Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic (SADR) after President William Ruto appeared to have severed ties with the country following bilateral talks with Morocco.
PS Macharia Kamau stated in a letter to various Heads of Mission in the country that Kenya’s position was entirely aligned with the AU’s appeal for the Sahrawi people’s free self-determination.
“Kenya’s position on the Sahrawi Arab Democractic Republic is fully aligned with; the decision of the Organization of African Unity (OAU) to admit SADR to its membership on 22nd August 1982, and the AU Charter which calls for the unquestionable and inalienable right of a people to self-determination,” read the letter in part.
To avoid another error in the aftermath of President Ruto’s deleted tweet, PS Macharia stated that the country would conduct foreign policy through documents rather than social media.
“Kenya does not conduct its foreign policy on Tvitter or any other social media platforms, rather through official government documents and frameworks,” the letter reads.
Kenya and the Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic established diplomatic ties in March 2005, with former President Mwai Kibaki receiving credentials from the Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic’s ambassador to Kenya.
The Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic is recognized by 44 of the 193 United Nations member states as of September 2022. The Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic has been recognized by 84 UN member nations at various times, however 40 of these have since “frozen” or “withdrawn” recognition.
Since 1984, the SADR has been a member of the African Union (AU), formerly the Organization of African Unity (OAU). Morocco withdrew from the OAU in protest at the time, until 2017, when it rejoined the African Union.
