Security tight at Chiromo mortuary as families await bodies of KDF soldiers

Nairobi - Security is tight at the Chiromo mortuary as families of dead and missing Kenya Defence Forces KDF soldiers from the attack by Al Shabaab forces in Al Adde await news of the fate of their loved ones.

News24 visited the mortuary, where the DNA tests to determine the identities of the slain soldiers where access to the section of the mortuary where the bodies of the dead were kept was restricted.

Only close family members were allowed in the facility, we were told.

There was also still no official record on how many bodies were in the facility and how many families, if any had been granted the bodies of their loved ones to bury.

" There is no access for the media. None," News24 were told by soldiers guarding the facility.

The level of secrecy in determining the number of killed, and missing soldiers in the ill fated attack has worried families and Kenyans alike.

Families of the dead and missing are being forced to endure a long wait to know the fate of the soldiers yet to be found.

DNA tests have taken long, with the projected three days most families were told at first turning to three weeks.

The attack took place Friday 15 January and to this day the KDF has been tight lipped as far as information is concerned.

" It is sad that they are quiet and we have been given no information whatsoever," James Korir, whose cousin was in the Al Adde camp when it was attacked told News24.

He says that they handed over DNA samples three weeks ago.

KDF headquarters did not give News24 any updates on the latest news on the attack.
