Businessman Frank Buyanga wrote to United Nations Secretary-General Mr Antonio Guterres asking him to consider Zimbabwe for a seat in the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) as a non-permanent member.
He said Zimbabwe should be considered because it is one of the most secure States in Africa which had never had any major disturbances. Buyanga argues ‘smaller’ African countries should not be left out of the UNSC. Below is an excerpt of Buyanga’s letter seen by The Herald:
Sir, the UNSC is now more important than ever to Africa, particularly concerning matters of intervention in conflicts occurring within the region. With this importance there lies the undemocratic selection of African representatives who seat in this council, ‘smaller countries’ are left out. Secretary-General, it is from this background that we the people of Zimbabwe think it is time our country be given a chance to be part of the UNSC.

There is no threat to peace and security in Zimbabwe. Secretary-General, with your help and guidance we hope and trust that Zimbabwe will get the recognition it deserves. We recommend that you support our recommendation that ‘smaller’ African countries be given an opportunity to have a seat on the UNSC. Secretary-General, this recommendation must not only hold ground but also thoroughly be debated at the next UN General Assembly.
