“We have seen people and armed vehicles moving on the road which has crossed the border between Somalia and Kenya when non-Kenyan troops who have fled from their country with their guns come to Kenya, we don’t agree those militias to destroy our county”.
“If any army flees from their country to Kenya for asylum and protection, they have to surrender their weapons and hand over to Kenyan government and that is the only process they can come into Kenya”. Added Omar Mohamed.
