The leaders of Senegal and South Africa have said that Africa should have at least two permanent seats in the UN Security Council.

Continental leaders have begun to complain about the council’s unfair treatment. Senegalese President Macky Sall and South African President Cyril Ramaphosa held a joint press conference in Dakar, Senegal yesterday, saying the council should give space to Africa.

He said Africa, as a continent with 54 sovereign states and a population of 1.3 billion, should have a permanent seat in the lower house. The presidents complained that the UN system was unfair.

“We will continue to intensify our efforts to end the pressure on Africa,” he said.
“We want justice, we want Africa to be well represented and heard,” he said. “We will continue to fight for the fairness of the organization,” he said.

Prime Minister Dr. Abiy Ahmed today announced on his Twitter account that he has openly joined this continental justice movement. (ENA)
