KDF to stay in Somalia until Al-Shabaab is destroyed

Kenyan soldiers will continue to maintain their presence in Somalia until the war-ravaged country is peaceful and Al-Shabaab is defeated, President Uhuru has said.

Kenya went to Somalia in 2011 and continues to work under African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM) in a peace keeping mission.

Speaking on Sunday during the 7th annual KDF Day at Kenyatta Barracks in Gilgil, President Kenyatta said,

"We went to Somalia in 2011. We shall continue our presence in the country until the restoration of full security in Somalia."

The Day is marked in memory of all soldiers who have perished while in the line of duty.

The Commander in Chief of the Armed forces also opened a Sh3.8 billion agro-processing factory within the barracks that will benefit farmers in farmers in Nakuru, Nyandarua, Narok, Elgeyo Marakwet and Nyeri counties.
