KDF soldier saved by locals in Somali attack

22 January 2016, 19:35 William Korir

Nairobi - A Kenya Defence Forces KDF officer who survived the Somali attack says he was initially housed by locals as he attempted to make his way from the scene of the incident.

The officer, who asked that his name be kept private says that in the aftermath of the attack, he hid in nearby bushes until day break and then slowly made his way from the scene of the attack which he says was badly attacked.

He says that the two large explosions that took place accounted for the death of a huge number of those who perished.

"The explosions were huge. They took apart close to 50 % of our camp. They were massive," he explained.

The officer, who was injured in the legs by shrapnel from the explosion, says that local hid them in their homes, saying that they appreciated the effort that the KDF put into liberating Somalia from the Al Shabaab.

" I was not sure what to do because I was alone and they offered me a place. I was pensive but I agreed since I had my weapon," he adds.

He says he was rescued by Kenyan soldiers on Monday who had come to clean up.

" I am happy to be back here alive but my heart bleeds for all my colleagues who died," he said at the Forces Memorial Hospital in Nairobi.

The attack is said to have accounted for the lives of upto 100 KDF soldiers but the exact numbers are yet to be known as the rescue operation takes place.
