Nairobi - The Kenyan Army has sent some of its troops across the border into Somalia at Liboi and Mandera to create a buffer zone, in a bid of securing Kenya against insurgents attacks.
Speaking to the Daily Nation, the Internal Security permanent secretary, Francis Kimemia said that the security forces have drawn up strategies to defeat al Shabaab in their own land.
Kimemia also said that, how it will be done, the number of troops involved and where they will strike remains a preserve of the military, as we cannot give information that would be useful to the enemy.
Already reports indicate that there are foreign troops on the ground in Somalia, mainly from Uganda and Burundi, under the African Union, and military trucks at border points and military choppers in the air.
