KDF relatives want the President to cancel Mombasa tour over Friday attack

19 January 2016, 09:32

Nairobi - Families of KDF soldiers who had been deployed in Somalia are accusing the government for taking too long to communicate.

The families that continue to flock various military bases to know the fate of their loved ones want the President to suspend his Mombasa tour and hold a crisis meeting over the same.

Their efforts to get information from the government have borne no fruit, those interviewed by Standard reported, with most getting impatient over the government’s delay to issue official communication on the attack.
