Indefinite wait for families of slain KDF soldiers

28 January 2016, 17:50 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - There will be an indefinite wait for news of the fate of dead and missing Kenya Defence Forces KDF soldiers, families have been told.

The families, who have already sent in DNA evidence to the KDF headquarters were told Wednesday in Eldoret that they would not be guaranteed a time range for news on their loved ones.

Thus far, the KDF has been tight-lipped on the fate of the soldiers and whether news on their whereabouts and fate is forthcoming.

And families which demanded after the prayer meeting to be given news were told they would have to be patient.

" We were told that we would have to be patient. They do not know. It can be tomorrow, or next week or next month," Alfred Saina whose brother Wilfred was in Al Adde told News24.

Families are not sure whether their loved ones are dead, kidnapped or just hiding somewhere but with time going, this is 13 days after the attack, are losing hope by the day.

" We will wait but with everyday gone it is gratifying," he added.

There were said to be as many as 240 solders in the Al Adde camp when it was attacked.

Thus far officially, only 31 bodies have been brought back home and close to 50 survivors rescued.

Efforts by News24 to get any information from the KDF was fruitless.
