19 January 2016, 08:07 PSCU

Nairobi - More Kenya Defence Forces (KDF) soldiers who survived Saturday’s Al-Shabaab attack on a Kenyan military base in Somalia have arrived in Nairobi. The 16 were received by Defence Cabinet Secretary Raychelle Omamo and the Chief of Defence Forces General Samson Mwathethe.

The soldiers arrived at Wilson Airport at noon aboard a Kenya Air Force aircraft.

Omamo said more soldiers have been send to the Gedo region in Somalia, where the attack occurred, to carry out search and recovery operations. “This is another group of heroes and though they have no physical injuries, they are exhausted because of the ordeal they went through,” she said, adding that the number of soldiers killed would be made public once the operation ends.

The CS while briefing the media yesterday told Kenyans to be patience as the search continues, warning that giving the numbers could jeopardise operations and endanger more KDF soldier in Somalia. “The operation area remains dangerous, volatile and fluid and our soldiers remain at risk,“ she warned.

The return of surviving soldiers comes with praises of the KDF across the country for their heroic defence of the country.
