Permanent Representative of Kenya to the United Nations

Zachary Muburi-Muita was appointed Kenya’s ambassador and permanent representative to the United Nations in New York in 2006. He has pressed for the UN to begin work on a binding global treaty on small arms in Africa because economic development is dependent on peace and security. Previously, he served as Kenya’s high commissioner to Tanzania.
