KDF remains mum over news on Al Adde attack victims

23 February 2016, 14:44 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - The Kenya Defence Forces KDF is still quiet over the number of soldiers killed in the Al Adde attack in Somalia as well as those injured and missing.

Inquiries by News24 on the numbers of those affected by the January 15 attack did not bear fruit.

News24 was told that the status of the matter is still pending.

" There is no news. At the moment there is nothing to speak about," a senior soldier who did not want to be named said.

There was also no mention of the number of soldiers who died and have been buried.

The KDF is quietly going about the business of handing families the bodies of their loved ones but without releasing any information.

So far by News24's count, more than 60 bodies have been availed to the families of the slain soldiers.

It is estimated that around 240 soldiers were affected in the attack.

CORD leader Raila Odinga recently called on the government to tell Kenyans the exact details of the attack.
