UNMIL Force Commander Major-General Leonard Muriuki Ngondi of Kenya

For the past decade, the UN Mission in Liberia (UNMIL) has been supporting the country's efforts to consolidate peace gains following civil war in the 1990s which killed more than 200,000 people.

Major-General Leonard Muriuki Ngondi of Kenya, Force Commander at the mission, says UNMIL forces are busy with patrols and assisting the government in detecting potential threats to a secure environment.

UN Radio's Ben Malor caught up with Major-General Ngondi during the recent meeting of Force Commanders from UN peacekeeping missions which takes place annually in New York.
