Missing KDF soldier communicated night before Al Adde attack

25 February 2016, 14:04 William Korir

Nairobi - The family of a missing Kenya Defence Forces KDF soldier is worried about his whereabouts more than a month after the Al Adde attack in Somalia.

Stephen Mayaka is nowhere to be seen a month after the attacks which took place January 15.

His family has forwarded information to the KDF as well as DNA samples but there has been nothing to speak of to this date.

Efforts to contact the KDF have not bourne fruit thus far.

His family is now frustrated to the end of the world and asks that the ordeal end soon.

" This is torture. We do not know what to do. The KDF is quiet. They are not helping the situation," his brother John says.

He says that his brother communicated the night before the attack and said that all was well, he says.

" He communicated and that was the last time we have heard from him," his brother added.

His phone was on for a couple of days after the attack but went off.

" His phone was on and we even communicated with someone but it went off a few days later," he added.

The KDF is taking its time over DNA  tests after confusion in previous cases caused by poor testing.

The KDF is also yet to announce how many soldiers died in the attacks in Al Adde.
