Kenya: President Uhuru Kenyatta's Statement on the Deaths of 9 Kenyan Soldiers in Somalia

press release

Earlier today, I was appalled and saddened to learn that we had lost nine young patriots to a cowardly terrorist attack in Somalia. These men gave their lives for their country, and for peace; we must, and we will, honour their service, their sacrifice and their valour.

The mission for which they gave everything will continue until the evil terrorists of Al Shabaab are defeated, and the people of Somalia are safe once more. We owe victory to the fallen. You may be sure we will win, for we have right and might on our side.

May God rest the souls of our warriors, and may he grant their families the courage to bear this loss.
