Bad News to Al-Shabaab in Somalia as KDF's Bold Plan Leaks to The Media

The Kenya Defence Forces (KDF)'s bold plan has leaked to the media, leaving Al-Shabaab militants with hard decisions to make.

It is now over 10 years since Kenyan forces crossed the border and camped in Somalia, with an aim of stabilizing the Horn of Africa, and bringing to an end, Al-Shabaab's attacks.

KDF had earlier indicated its plan to withdraw from Somalia and end its mission in December 2021, however, emerging reports are now saying the Kenyan forces are not yet done with terrorists at the Horn of Africa.

Plan by KDF and other UN forces to extend their stay in Somalia has been revealed to the media, with Kenya's Nation one of the media confirming the same.

It has been revealed that KDF and other AMISOM forces will be surrendering secured areas to local forces, the Somali National Army (SNA), and move to liberate other regions.

Several towns and regions have so far been secured after the bad guys were moved away.

The move by KDF and their AMISOM counterparts indicate they are set to go after Al-Shabaab from their new hideouts, kick them out and secure more regions and eventually the whole of Somalia.
