02 February 2016, 17:24 William Korir

Nairobi - The Kenya Defence Forces KDF is still quiet on the fate of missing soldiers more than three weeks since the Al Adde attack in Somalia.

Queries by News24 to the KDF headquarters in Nairobi were met with no answers.

Military spokesperson David Obonyo said that there was still no news and that families of the missing and dead had been informed of the ongoing process.

" The families are in the know on what is going on," he said.

On the number of those who died and are missing or injured, News24 was given a negative answer.

" Nothing to say at the moment," he added.

Families though say that they remain in the dark.

Speaking to a number of families of the missing, frustration was the theme of the day.

" We do not know what to do now. We are left to either pray or think that he could be dead," Julius Monari a brother to Geoffrey, a soldier on duty at Al Adde during the ill fated attack said.

It is thought that as many as 100 of the 240 soldiers who were at the camp could have died.

The KDF also did not state how many bodies have been found or the number of those saved from the attack.
