    Ruto sends 900 KDF to the Republic of congo (DRC)

    Published on

    Kenyan KDF troops will join other East African countries that have already sent troops to the Democratic Republic of the Congo in order to find a long-term solution to the country’s current conflict. These countries include South Sudan, Tanzania, Burundi, and Uganda.

    This comes after the parliamentary committee approved sending KDF troops to DRC for security reasons.

    “Reviewing the application for permission of the rollout of Kenya National Army  to the DRC, was evaluated both written and oral shared variable before the Review panel, and praised the relevant law governments.” Reads a statement from the committee.

    Kenya will spend Ksh.601.87 million more than the usual allocated amount on such deployments, according to the parliament committee that approved the proposal. The country will spend Ksh4.45 billion instead of the usual budget allocation of Ksh3.85.

    Aden Duale, the CS for defense, explained to the committee why the budget had changed and how much more money would be spent. This was after a trip to the Democratic Republic of the Congo, and the situation demanded new approaches.

    Furthermore, Kenya will be able to protect its vital interests, such as Kenyan businesses such as banks operating in the DRC, numerous Kenyan business people in the DRC, bilateral trade with the DRC, and the DRC’s use of the Mombasa port, among others.

    The decision to send KDF troops to the DRC will not only help to calm the conflict, but will also protect Kenyans in the DRC and Kenyan businesses such as banks, as well as improve trade between Kenya and Congo.
