Acting Deputy Army Commander Major General Peter Muteti on 17 October 2022 at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA), saw off the advance party of Kenya Defence Forces Signals Company (KENSIG) set to deploy to the Democratic Republic of Congo as part of the United Nations Organisation Stabilisation Mission (MONUSCO).
Speaking during the event, Major General Muteti urged the troops to execute their mandate professionally in order to ensure MONUSCO achieves its mandate.
‘‘Be wary of any possible threats while you will be carrying out your duties in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Being the first KENSIG troops, endeavour to uphold the exemplary performance registered by your predecessors who have already been deployed to DRC,” he said.
The Company’s key objective is to provide and support communication connectivity and information technology services to the Mission and the Force.
Further the troops are expected to continue with the implementation of the MONUSCO mandate of protecting civilians, support stabilisation and neutralise armed militia as well as working together with other deployed militaries in the Eastern DRC.
The Deputy Army Commander further urged the troops to remain vigilant as they will be deployed to volatile areas, wished them the best and assured them of KDF support to troops while serving in the mission as well as to their families back at home.
