Parliament to carry out own inquiry into KDF attack

27 January 2016, 13:03 Joseph Njung'eh

Nyeri - Parliament is going to carry out its own inquiry into KDF camp attack in Somalia, Parliamentary Defense and Foreign Relations Committee, Ndung’u Gethenji has said.

The Chairman said parliament will be inquiring into the events that took place leading to the attack that occasioned loss of life of KDF soldiers when their camp in El Adde, was overran by suspected Al Shabaab militants.

He said the committee had the parliamentary and constitutional oversight duty of inquiring into the event even as the military carries out its own internal investigations.

Gethenji, who is the MP for Tetu constituency, said this would help in appreciating the challenges that KDF was facing in taking lead role in the AMISOM peacekeeping mission in Somalia.

He noted that there was an urgent need for Parliament to discuss the country’s role in the mission to appreciate the challenges and opportunities faced in the mission.

Speaking at Muthinga trading center in his constituency during a community meeting, Gethenji said the operation had achieved significant gains, but time had come to re-think and re-look at the challenges.

“We want to see a debate brought to the floor of parliament where we will debate and come up with a position regarding Kenya taking lead role in liberating Somalia,” he said.

The Chairman said it was also high time that the international community took up its role in supporting the mission by giving appropriate resources.

“The European Union, United Nations and whole international community fraternity must give proper asset cover to the mission in terms of air support and naval component,” said Gethenji.
