Plenty questions left unanswered as KDF leaves Al Adde

26 January 2016, 18:45 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - The Kenya Defence Forces KDF have denied reports that they have runaway from the Al Adde town in Somalia, where their camp was attacked and more than 100 soldiers are said to have died.

According to various reports coming out of Somalia, the KDF has lefty Al Adde, more than 10 days after an attack by Shabaab forces led to the massive losses by the Kenyan forces.

News24 on seeking confirmation of the apparent move by the KDF, was told that the military had indeed left the scene but that it had not run away as had been initially reported.

" We have left Al Adde," military spokesperson David Obonyo told News24.

" However, the operation we were running there is complete and we are moving elsewhere," he added.

The move though, will raise more questions than answers.

Families of the more than 200 soldiers who were at the camp are yet to receive the bodies of their loved ones who were in the attack or those that are still declared as missing.

Thus the decision by KDF to leave will baffle many.

Obonyo says that at the moment, the military operation seeking those affected by the attack is still ongoing.

" Al Adde is cleared. There is nothing left there," he added.

So far according to official records, only 81 of the more than 240 soldiers have been accounted for, with families of the dead and missing left to ponder whether they will get information about their loved ones.
