Days after President Uhuru Kenyatta announced that the Kenyan troops would be going for a peace-keeping mission.

Kenyan troops have already started the necessary training that would help big time during deployment.

The Commander Kenya Army Lt. Gen. Walter R Koipaton visited Kenya Defence Forces (KDF) Quick Reaction Force (QRF) troops training at Kangaita Camp in Mt. Kenya, Nanyuki.

The troops successfully completed both the pre-deployment training and the United Nations verification exercise prerequisites prior to deployment to the United Nations Organization Stabilization Mission in the Democratic Republic of Congo (MONUSCO).

KDF troops have represented Kenya honorably in Peace Support Operations since 1979 when Kenya, a Member State of the United Nations (UN), deployed troops in Rhodesia, present-day Zimbabwe. View pictures in App save up to 80% data.

In line with UN Member State obligations, Kenya has reliably participated in several UN Peace Support Operations across the globe including the United Nations Organisation Stabilisation Mission in DR Congo (MONUSCO).

Presently, Kenya has deployed military staff officers and military observers to MONUSCO under UNSC Resolution 2556 (2020).

The Commander Kenya Army who observed an integrated training exercise at the camp congratulated the troops for their preparedness and wished them success as they represent the country in DRC.

The Commander called upon every soldier to uphold the values of KDF, to be professional and mission ready to undertake their duties under MONUSCO.

This mission led to a roller-coaster of mixed feelings as netizens across the country elicited some wild reactions.

A majority of Kenyans lashed at the president's decision saying that Congo was a very dangerous place to send out troops. View pictures in App save up to 80% data.
