CORD ask Kerry to help withdraw KDF from Somalia

04 May 2015, 18:47 William Korir

Nairobi - Coalition for Reform and Democracy CORD leaders have asked US Secretary of State John Kerry to help have the Kenya Defence Forces Removed from Somalia.

The CORD leaders led by party leader and chief principals Raila Odinga and his deputies Kalonzo Musyoka and Moses Wetangula called on Kerry to help the country reduce the amount of forces in Somalia which would in part reduce the number of terror attacks in the country which have been caused by the Al Shabaab terror group.

They met Monday at Nairobi's Serena Hotel.

" We have asked that he speaks to the government to come up with a plan to help the KDF come back from Somalia, Kalonzo said in the aftermath of the meeting.

" As a coalition we insist that the KDF is not achieving much in Somalia and should immediately come home.

There was no word from the US secretary, or his team on the matter which has been contested heavily by the Jubilee coalition which states that removing the KDF from Somalia will only enhance the problem with Al Shabaab.
