Kenya will continue to take on Al Shabaab, Uhuru says

19 January 2016, 22:25

Nairobi - Kenya will not be bowed by the recent loss of soldiers in Somalia and will take even more heart going forward, President Uhuru Kenyatta has said.

Speaking in his first live adress since the attack took place last Friday, the President stated that there would be no going back on the efforts to ensure Somalia is free from terror and that Kenya would play a leading role in ensuring so.

The Daily Nation reports that the President promised to see Kenya to victory over the Shabaab.

" This war on terrorism demands unity as a nation. We are grateful to our armed forces who are always ready to do duty to fight for our freedoms,” he said in Mombasa.

In a further report in The Standard, the President stated that the slain soldiers would not have died in vain and that Kenya would avenge the killings.

It is estimated that as many as 60 soldiers could have been killed in the attack on the KDF camp in Al Adde Somalia, even though no official statement has been made on the exact numbers.

The Kenya Defence Forces KDF is understood to already be on a mission to save soldiers thought to have been hiding from Shabaab forces in Somalia.

Already, 4 bodies of slain officers have been brought back to the country.
