It has been a tale that remains unconfirmed if it is true that KDF are in Somalia for the sake Kenya’s security. Our men in uniforms seem to be playing a game that us—civilians, are not sure of. It has been years since KDF crossed into Somalia to fight terrorists that were suspected of kidnapping tourists in Kenya, especially in areas along Kenya-Somalia border.
It has happened before and it will happen again! Kenya Army will launch air strikes against al-shabaab insurgents strongholds in move to destroy active terror cells along the border.
