22 January 2016, 12:21 Joseph Njung'eh

Nyeri - A family in Mweiga town, Nyeri County has expressed their joy after their son landed in the country safe and alive after surviving the KDF attack in El Adde Somalia.

William Kagume and Zipporah Nyambura, parents of 29-year-old KDF officer Eric Wambugu, said they were overjoyed to see their son alight from a plane at Wilson Airport during evening news.

Kagume said they were in panick when they first heard about the attack.

“We desperately tried to make calls everywhere and only got rest when we saw him on the television. We hurriedly made efforts to travel to Nairobi to meet him,” said Kagume.

Answering questions from journalists at his home, Kagume said the family is happy that their first-born son is recovering well from a bullet wound on his hand.

“We visited him at Forces Memorial Hospital in Nairobi early this week and found him recovering. He can walk and talk. We are happy though he lost some of his colleagues,” said the father.

Wambugu, who was based at Gilgil Army Barrack, left the country immediately after Christmas and had only spent two weeks in Somalia when they were attacked.

Asked if they would like their son to continue serving in the army, his mother said they would leave it to him to decide.

His father, who is a retired army officer said the government should continue with its mission in Somalia until the country stabilizes.
