As Kenya’s Defence forces Criminal Racket is exposed and the Federal government demand withdrawal

Somalilandsun – Human rights abuses inside Somalia by the Kenya Defence forces appear widespread and are carried out with impunity with Air strikes targeting livestock and wells rather than militant training camps.

According to a report by Journalists for Justice the Kenya Defence Forces, rather than taking the fight to al-Shabaab, are actually in garrison mode, sitting in bases while senior commanders are engaged in corrupt business practices with the Jubaland administration and al-Shabaab.

The report examining whether Operation Linda Nchi is actually delivering was overdue , looks at the conduct of KDF forces in two areas: 1) sugar smuggling and financial enabling of al-Shabaab and, 2) human rights violations.

The title “Black and White” (“black” for charcoal and “white” for sugar) denotes the unearthed facts that the Kenya Defence Forces, rather than taking the fight to al-Shabaab, are actually in garrison mode, sitting in bases while senior commanders are engaged in corrupt business practices with the Jubaland administration and al-Shabaab.

The report accusing KDF of censoring the media thus little independent reporting on the invasion, with coverage mostly from journalists taken on “guided” tours by the Kenya Defence Forces or with public relations videos paid for by the KDF, might be connected with unanimous vote by the Somalia parliament for Kenya withdrawal from Jubaland
