A Model United Nations (MUN) conference is exactly what its name states: it is “an authentic simulation of the United Nations General Assembly and other multilateral bodies." This simulation dates back to the League of Nations, the UN’s predecessor, when students held Model League of Nations conferences in the 1920’s. Today, more than 200,000 high school, college and university students participate in MUN around the world annually. Although each MUN Simulation is independent from the others, they all have common goals, which include increasing international understanding and developing the art of peaceful negotiation among potential national and international leaders. It is for his reason that participants are assigned a country which they have to represent throughout the MUN conference, thus in the simulated General Assembly sessions, Committees etc. Therefore, the opinions given by delegates are never their own or a reflection of the opinions or policies of their home country, but that of the country which they were assigned to represent.


The Kenya Model United Nations (KenyaMUN) is a student led and student run non-profit organization. KenyaMUN is affiliated to the United Nations Information Centre (UNIC), Gigiri (Nairobi).
Our organization has close to 900 members from over 18 Kenyan Universities and colleges (Chapters / Agencies), a number which is increasing annually. The Model United Nations was initiated in Kenya by Mr. Ronald Osumba of Moi University in 2001 with the organization then being referred to as Kenya Model United Nations.
