The opposition Coalition for Reforms and Democracy (CORD) co-principal, Moses Wetangula, has called on President Uhuru Kenyatta to withdraw Kenyan troops from the war-torn Somalia following the an attack on the Kenya Defence Forces (KDF) camp in Kulbiyow near Hughulo at the Kenya – Somalia border on Friday, January 27.

Wetangula said that the number of Kenyans who have lost lives in the line of duty since Kenya sent its troops to Somalia to help fight the Al Shabaab militants has been on the rise.

He said that families have lost breadwinners and the country has suffered multiple attacks from the Islamist fighters who target innocent and unsuspecting Kenyans.

“The death of unknown number of Kenyan soldiers is sad for the country. The soldiers were sent there as Operation Linda Nchi and not to guard another country. They should come back home and guard our borders,” said Wetangula.

Speaking at the Busia Polytechnic grounds on Friday, January 27, Wetangula said it is time Kenyan servicemen and women came back home.

The Ford Kenya leader, who also doubles up as the Bungoma Senator, said that the country has suffered enough losses through attacks planted by the militants.
