Rwanda and SA support Kenya

31 October 2011, 10:44

Australia – Rwanda and South Africa are in full support of Kenya’s cause in Somalia to neutralise Al-Shaabab insurgents and have pledged their to help Kenya in its bid to wade off foreign attacks and other aggressions against her national interests, Capital News reports.

Whilst in Perth, President Mwai Kibaki briefed President Paul Kagame of Rwanda and Jacob Zuma of South Africa in Perth, Western Australia, and the two pledged their government’s total support to the military action against Al-Shabaab extremists whose cross-border criminal activities violated recognised international protocols.

Kibaki explained that Kenya’s invocation of the relevant United Nations Charter against continued aggression by Al-Shaabab militants was in self-defence.

On their part, President Kagame and President Zuma condemned provocative attacks by the Al-Shabaab militants saying any interference in Kenya’s interests by aggressors has a direct bearing on their countries and the Indian Ocean coastal region.
