KDF SOLDIERS PAID ULTIMATE PRICE
For its presence in Somalia, Kenya has paid with blood, tears and pain.
Though the official death toll from the war has never been made public, dozens of KDF personnel paid the “ultimate price.”
The biggest single blow happened on January 16, 2017, when al-shabaab militants overran a KDF base in El-adde resulting in hundreds of casualties on either side.
A degraded al-shabaab now avoids confrontations with the armies and prefers to plant explosives on the supply routes to target army convoys.
