28 Sep

Kenyan Defense Forces have finally took control of Kismayu port in Somalia following heavy battle with the militants on Friday morning.

Military Spokesman Col Cyrus Oguna said the town was liberated at 2 am with jets and ground forces.

“We have taken control of the town. Our forces are already in Kismayu,” Oguna said.

Several Al Shabaab militants were killed in the attack but the exact casualty figures are yet to be released. “The damage will be assessed and we will give you all the information available.” KDF is now urging residents of Kismayu to move out of the battle ground to avoid falling casualty.

“Residents are advised to avoid areas where KDF & SNA troops are,” a tweet posted by the Kenyan Military said with a blaring message “KDF TROOPS HAVE TAKEN CONTROL OF KISMAYU!!!
