Breathtaking Photos Of KDF Soldiers In DRC That Has Made Them Receive Praise Internationally

The professional and ethical conduct of the Kenya Defense Forces (KDF) over the years has earned the country respect and global recognition. Despite the difficult working conditions, the soldiers made a habit of going off duty and providing humanitarian services to the local community.

They often spend time with local residents and listen to their needs, problems and issues. The Kenyan military is also recognized for its smooth operations, recording outstanding achievements both locally and internationally.

In January 2022, the government sent the first and second contingents of defense forces to the Democratic Republic of the Congo to restore order in the eastern region of the gold-rich country.

For almost two months, Kenyan troops led by the East African Regional Force (EARF) have been encamped in Goma, planning how to neutralize more than 100 rebel groups that have wreaked havoc.

In the midst of this grueling but terrifying operation, Kenyan forces are showing their side by helping local communities with food, water, medical services and other humanitarian services.

They have built a great relationship with the villagers who provide important advice and information needed for the operation.

The joint military operation intensified after the armed group M23 agreed to give ground to the East African Regional Force in a mini-summit in Luanda on November 23, 2022.

On December 23, 2022, Kenyan forces worked with local leaders to evacuate hundreds of displaced people in the Kibumba region after the retreat of M23 militants.

They coordinate the regular return of migrants, especially from the Kinyaruchinya IDP camp on the outskirts of Goma, and establish a focal point through the Nyumba Kumi system for collective efforts aimed at peace and stability in Eastern DRC.

On Wednesday, January 4, EACRF troops led by Army Commander Colonel Daniel Rotich conducted reconnaissance patrols in Rumangambo, Kisigari and Rugari in North Kivu province.
