FRANCE TRAINS 700 SOL­DIERS

The Star (Kenya) - - Counties Coast -

Ra­moneda said France has trained 700 Kenyan sol­diers in two years and they have been de­ployed to So­ma­lia. Kenya forces en­tered So­ma­lia to fight al Shabaab in 2011 after sev­eral kid­nap­ping of for­eign­ers at the Dadaab refugee camp and a cou­ple in a ho­tel in Lamu. Ra­moneda said France is keen on strength­en­ing its re­la­tion­ship with Kenya. She said they have now part­nered with Kenya Navy and the Mar­itime depart­ment to im­prove se­cu­rity.
