It would be more wise to build their camps Near Kenyan border to prevent ambushed alshabaabs fleeing into Kenya as innocent civilians!! The border should be closed with immediate effect and anyone found crossing into or out of Kenya should not only be grilled but imprisoned for not less than 5 yrs!!

They should also set satellite camps within every 20 Km radius upto 100km from the Main border camps to act as a buffer zone.

In Mandera, they should do a house to house search for illegal weapons, person to person grilling and prevent interfearance from the media and political class!! Media & Politicians are undermining your efforts and effectiveness in doing your good work.

Samuel Kamau!! It is only you and only you to help yourself!! When there will be rucruitments, avail yourself!! If you qualify well and good, if you dont try next tym!! I will fault the idea of using money for favours!! It is we the citizens making KDF make wrong selections during recruitments when we come with silver and gold!!
