TNA wants KDF withdrawn from Somalia

20 November 2013, 14:46

Murang'a  - The government has been asked to withdraw its security forces from Somalia after the United Nations Security Council failed to defer Kenya’s cases at the International Criminal Court for one year.

The chairman of The National Alliance (TNA) party, Johnson Sakaja, said it was not worth to keep the troops in Somalia and risk the country’s relations, The Star reports.

Kenya invaded southern Somalia to attack Al-Shabaab bases two years ago, and later joined the 17,700-strong African Union force deployed in the country.

The Al-Shabaab called on the government to withdraw its troops from Somalia following the Westgate terror attack, which the group claimed responsibility.

However, President Uhuru Kenyatta said the troops had been sent to Somalia to restore order to their anarchic neighbour, and they would not leave until the job was done.
