    Duale: Kenya will spend Ksh7.2 billion for DRC peacekeeping.

    Published on

    Defense CS Aden Duale has estimated that Kenya would spend up to Sh7.2 billion on the existing peacekeeping deployment in DRC if it continues for a year.

    The stability of the DRC, like with other neighboring nations, has an impact on Kenya, according to Duale.

    “Kenya, Somalia, and Ethiopia will suffer if the Congo is not secure and stable. We have a moral obligation to contribute to the situations in South Sudan, Somalia, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, and northern Ethiopia,” Duale said.

    Kenya has already sent two groups of soldiers to the eastern part of the Democratic Republic of the Congo for an initial six-month deployment.

    However, Duale pointed out that the African Union and the United Nations have already begun giving the East African Community in Regional Force technical and financial assistance.

    Kenya has pledged to deploy at least 900 troops to the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) to maintain peace there.

    The second group of 200 troops departed the nation on Wednesday, while the first group left for the DRC on November 12.
