Mogadishu (SD) – The Somali Federal Government has announced that it has lost confidence in Kenya’s KDF forces’ ability to support efforts to stabilize Somalia.
Somalia made the announcement in a statement issued by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs rejecting the IGAD fact-finding mission’s report on the Somali-Kenyan border.
“The Federal Government of Somalia has lost its confidence in the KDF’s ability to support the effort to stabilize and bring about long-term peace and security given the overt manner that the Government of Kenya has sought to exploit its presence in the country as a pretext to further its national interests.” Said the statement.
Somalia has accused the Kenyan government of taking advantage of its presence in Somalia to further its own national interests in Somalia.
“Simply put, KDF forces cannot support the stability of Somalia while fueling instability in Somalia,” the ministry said in a statement.
Somali government severed political ties with Kenya late last year, accusing it of meddling in the country’s internal affairs.
