According to the sources a woman identified as Mary Kabiru has bitterly lamented of government laxity when it comes to KDF Soldier welfare while in war sending a sorrowful message to Kenya Army Commander President Uhuru Kenyatta.

Through a Facebook post, Kabiru, whose husband was one of the two who were murdered yesterday, bitterly lamented that the government was not offering the soldiers enough fighting equipment's hence living them under the mercies of bandits.

Kiiru, who has been left a widow, has expressed her sorrow at the loss of her husband, who she described as her only hope. According to her, if Interior CS Matiang'i Fred had taken action sooner rather than later after issuing orders, she would not have lost her husband.
