Slain KDF soldier had promised family Easter treat

15 February 2016, 18:03 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - The family of a KDF soldier killed in Somalia had been promised an Easter treat which will now not be in the wake of his death in Al Adde.

Isiah Mwanja died in the Al Adde attack it has now been revealed but the news of his death only reached his family Sunday, a month after the attack by Al Shabaab militants.

The highly motivated 30 year old soldier had left for Somalia in high spirits and promised his family an Easter treat when he arrives back from the war torn state but that was not to be.

He was identified thanks to DNA testing at the Chiromo Mortuary.

" He had promised us that he would be back for Easter and that we would celebrate but it seems God had other plans," his brother George told News24.

Mwanja was described as a man of substance by close family.

" He was the courageous one. He always undertook his duty with the best of his ability and mind. He was a good man," his cousin Willis added.

Mwanja will be buried this weekend.

He is among a number of soldiers that succumbed to the Shabaab in the January 15 Al Adde attack. So far the number of dead soldiers is not known.
