NAIROBI, Kenya (AP) — German Chancellor Olaf Scholz has offered support to African countries to get a permanent seat in the U.N Security Council while on a visit to Kenya. Scholz told his host, President William Ruto, that he believes in African-led solutions to African issues such as the ongoing conflict in Sudan.
