Kenya accepts most of the outcomes recommended in its Universal Periodic Review

Following the interactive dialogue phase of the Universal Periodic Review, the Kenyan government has indicated its support for one hundred and twenty eight of the recommendations that were made to it by fellow member states.

A further fifteen recommendations will be examined further by Kenya and a decision about their acceptance made by September.

Seven of the recommendations were rejected.

Several  of the recommendations that were accepted related to education, which was a major issue of concern raised by Edmund Rice International in its joint submission as part of the UPR process,

eg “101.109 Strengthen its educational policy to guarantee the required quality of education, accessible to all members of its population, especially the marginalized and most vulnerable groups (Slovakia);” and

“101.110. Develop education policies that ensure quality education, particularly for the poor, marginalized and vulnerable segments of its population, and request international assistance to that end (Bolivia);

The next challenge will be to ensure the Kenyan government follows through on its commitments.
