Women want Obama to discuss withdrawing soldiers from Somalia

THE Women Empowerment Kenya yesterday urged US President Barack Obama to press for withdrawal of Kenyan troops from Somalia for the sake of peace.

Leader Truphena Moraa said: “It beats logic for Kenyans to die at home in terror attacks while the troops are taking care of another country.”

It is long overdue for Kenyan troops to leave Somalia and come back to take care of Kenya,” she said in a press briefing in Nairobi.

The group said citizens are made to believe terror attacks in Kenya are normal.

Moraa said Kenya was peaceful until it invaded Somalia.

“If the former regime had a picture of what could happen after invasion, it would not have dared to [invade Somalia]. For how long will Kenyans bleed in terror attacks?” she said.
