Nairobi - Daily Nation reports that the Kenya army troops spearheading operation linda nchi in Somalia have now become become part of the United Nations-sponsored African Mission in Somalia(Amisom).
The unanimous vote in Parliament by the Mps on Wednesday authorising the Kenya Defence Forces currently in Somalia to serve under Amisom, has removed the last hurdle, which gave the conversion of the mission from a purely Kenyan affair to a UN/AU sponsored one after the Cabinet last week approved the move.
Kenya has created the conditions for military victory over Al-Shabaab, now being fought on three fronts, with the prospect of giving the Transitional Federal Government the room it needs to take charge of more of the lawless country.
