US not to vote a resolution that Kenya become a non-permanent mbr for US Security Council

Kenya is not the right country to become a candidate for the UN Security Council non-permanent seat for the following reasons: 1. Kenya will never be a fair voice of Africa due to the maritime dispute between Somalia and Kenya before International Court of Justice.  It is highly likely that Kenya will use the seat for its own illegitimate interest since Kenya has already used every possible political power to force Somali government out-of- court settlement.  2. Kenya has peace keeping army in Somalia but does support to fight terrorists Alshabab, but intervenes the sovereignty of Somalia instead. 3. Kenya is committing human right abuses against refugees in its country blocking International meetings to save lives in refugees Camps in Kenya.  They ordered many times Somali refugees to go back to Somalia which its government is still struggling to provide basic security to its official let alone its people. In addition, Kenya has been just defeated its UN resolution to blocks aids to the areas Alshabab controlling in Somalia.   4. Kenya's army in Somalia never came to Somalia through Somalia parliament resolution so the Somali people do not welcome as peace keepers but they view them as occupying forces.   5. Therefore, we, Diaspora Somali Concern Group, recommend US government not to vote for Kenya to become UN Security Council non-permanent member.
