KDF Soldiers Launch New Operations After Two Are Shot Dead in a Deadly Shootout

KDF (Kenya Defence Forces) soldiers in conjunction with other officers from the Kenya Police Service (KPS) have launched a joint operation in Laikipia after the death of two KDF soldiers and 2 GSU officers in the area

Two KDF soldiers and two GSU officers were killed on Wednesday by gunmen armed with pistols in the Kamwenje area, Laikipia West in the ongoing unrest in the area.

Administration officials said eight others, including seven soldiers, were injured in the ambush at Laikipia Nature Conservancy. This brings the total number of KDF officers shot to four by Friday Wednesday.

The KDF officials were reportedly digging a ditch around the reserve when they were killed by the bandits.

The killings led to the intensification of further operations in the area to hunt down the perpetrators of the attack.

More than 20 security officers have been killed by pirates stealing livestock in the area in the past several months.
