Families of KDF soldiers killed in Somalia attack cry for help

16 March 2016, 22:27 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - Two months after the Al Adde attack that saw a number of Kenya Defence Forces KDF killed in Somalia, families of some of the soldiers are suffering under the weight of the absence of their slain kin.

A number of families that spoke to News24 stated that they were yet to be compensated over the loss of their loved ones who were bread winners.

Some have been left to survive off relatives as they await the unknown amount of money allocated to them as compensation.

“We are still in the dark. The KDF has gone quiet,” the wife of a soldier killed in Al Adde that did not want to be named fearing victimization told News24.

“The office in Nairobi told us we would be called about compensation but every time we ask they say it is being worked on and we should wait,” she added.

A call to the KDF headquarters in Nairobi bore no fruit with officers refusing to comment on the matter.

Last month, military spokesman David Obonyo had asked for patience from the families, saying that the processes took time.

He however refused to state the number of dead in the attack, which has left speculation rife that as many as 100 soldiers died in the attack.
