Wetangula Renews Call For Kenyan Troops To Leave Somalia.

FORD Kenya leader Moses Wetangula has reiterated his call for Kenyan Defence Forces troops to be recalled from Somalia.

Addressing the press in his office on Tuesday, Wetangula said Kenya’s mission was stabilising Somalia through the creation of Juba land buffer zone, which was contested by both state and non-state actors.

The Bungoma Senator was the Foreign Affairs minister when Kenyan soldiers were deployed to Somalia.

“Somalia sees Kenya as a source of occupation and, therefore, there is need to take a more sober means of addressing the security issues in the region,” he said.

Wetangula expressed fears over the trend of terror attacks in Kenya and called for a change of tact in fighting terrorism.

“What is worrying is that the attackers are our own youngsters that have been converted,” he said. Wetangula blamed the Judiciary for taking long to prosecute terror related cases.
