KDF lauded for fighting piracy off Somali coast

By Daniel Psirmoi

Kenya’s military intervention in Somalia has been lauded for helping reduce piracy along the East African coast of the Indian Ocean.

A report by the Contact Group on Piracy off the Coast of Somalia (CGPCS) says the incursion of Kenyan troops in the conflict prone state has boosted the war against piracy.

“Kenya’s intervention played a significant role in enhancing security in Somalia and has contributed immensely to counter-piracy efforts,” reads the report.
