Led by social activist Boniface Mwangi, citizens have congregated in Nairobi at Freedom Corner, Uhuru Park to remember those who lost their lives in the Al Shabaab attack on African Union Mission in Somalia’s (AMISOM) base in Somalia last Friday.



Carrying banners that praised the valour of Kenya’s gallant troops, citizens from all walks of life lit candles in remembrance of Kenya’s troops.



Others came bearing roses which they placed alongside combat helmets at they prayed for dead, injured and missing soldiers.


On 22nd January, Al Shabaab militants overran an AMISOM army base in Somalia killing and injuring Kenyan soldiers who were part of the African Union’s peace keeping mission stationed in the war-torn state.

A week after the attack, the exact number of those injured and wounded still remains unknown.
