Kenya won't send troops to South Sudan for now

22 January 2014, 19:30 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - Kenya will not send troops to South Sudan for now, despite the agreement by several nations to send a combined peace-keeping force to the conflict struck nation.

East African nations acting in goodwill under the umbrella of the Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD) on Wednesday agreed to send 5,500 troops to south Sudan to aid the already existing efforts for a peaceful solution to the process.

And despite Kenya being at the forefront of establishing a peaceful accord in the nation, the government has said its troops will not be part of the 5,500 that head over to Sudan unless completely necessary.

" We like many other countries, have been approached to provide troops to help out in South Sudan, Cabinet Secretary for Foreign Affairs Amina Mohammed said.

" There are countries that have agreed to the the call for help while others are already in South Sudan like Uganda and we will support the initiative that sees them head out there.

" If there is complete need, then we will consider the call to have troops in Sudan, she said in Nairobi.

Uganda have led the call by the United Nations to send troops to Sudan and Amina says that Kenya will support the quest for peace in the country using a different avenue.

" We will offer logistical support and humanitarian help as we have done so far but will not go the military way unless completely necessary.

It is estimated that close to 3000 people have dies in South Sudan, with over 100,000 displaced due to the conflict.
