Bun­goma cleric wants troops to re­main in S Su­dan

The Star (Kenya) - - Counties -

A cleric in Bun­goma has backed calls by op­po­si­tion leader Raila Odinga that the state re­con­sider the move to with­draw Kenyan troops from South Su­dan. ACK Bishop Ge­orge Mechumo (pic­tured) said Kenya should be a good neigh­bour and help in restor­ing peace in South Su­dan. On Novem­ber 2, Kenya an­nounced it would im­me­di­ately with­draw more than 1,000 troops from the UN peace­keep­ing mis­sion in South Su­dan. This was trig­gered by the sack­ing of the Kenyan UN force com­man­der Johnson Ondieki over what the UN called fail­ure to come to the aid of nearby civil­ians un­der at­tack.
