KDF SOL­DIERS PAID UL­TI­MATE PRICE

Daily Nation (Kenya) - - NEWS -

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.
