Kenyans urged to support President in the fight against Al Shabaab

19 January 2016, 12:54 Joseph Njung'eh

Nyeri - Leaders from Central Kenya have called upon Kenyans to support President Uhuru Kenyatta in the fight against Al Shabaab.

The leaders who included MPs Moses Kuria (Gatundu South) and Kanini Kega (Kieni) and former Head of Public Service Francis Kimemia said there was need to support the government in the fight against the terror group.

Kimemia, who was the Secretary to the Cabinet when Kenya Defence Forces (KDF) were deployed in Somalia said despite the reported cases of KDF murders, the AMISOM should continue being equipped to ensure there is peace in Somalia and other neigbouring countries.

“I was one of those who made a Cabinet paper to allow KDF to move to Somalia. Let us support the President in this fight to ensure that Somalia and other neighbouring countries are secure,” he said.

Moses Kuria said the war against Al Shabaab will be won this year by the Kenyan government and those supporting the AMISOM group.

His counterpart, Kanini Kega said KDF will remain in Somalia until peace prevails, adding that the neigbouring countries cannot be safe if the terror groups will not be disbanded.

“Getting out of Somalia is a sign of cowardice. We shall support KDF morally, spiritually and financially,” said Kega.

The three were speaking at Kamariki, Kieni, during the celebration mass of Father John Mbai who has served 16 years in priesthood.

Similar sentiments were made by political aspirants Rahab Mukami, Githinji Kinyanjui, Nemesyus Warugongo and Stephen Muchire who were also present in the function.
