The Kenya Defence Forces Protest After What They Detected Their November Payslips Reactions

As The Star reports, there is growing disquiet within the Kenya defence forces (KDF) after the soldiers received their November 2022 monthly salary together with the payslips.

According to accounts of the officers, the November payslips showed a salary deduction with a one day salary deducted by the government to go towards helping in the drought response initiative.

KDF is a professional, credible, mission-capable Force and we are proud of our brand. When we say you’re an arrowhead, we mean it since we believe in you. Let our motto of mission readiness be alive said the Deputy Army Commander.He called upon the soldiers to abide by the law and protect humanity even as they endeavor to bring lasting peace in DRC and ultimately in the region and even internationally.

The mostly Congolese Tutsi group, the M23 (the March 23 Movement) leapt to prominence in 2012 when it briefly captured Goma before being driven out.After lying dormant for years, the rebels took up arms again in late 2021, claiming the DRC had failed to honour a pledge to integrate them into the army, among other grievances.
