It has always been an issue discussed in low tones, and probably that is coming to haunt us. Was Kibaki wrong to send our soldiers to Somalia?

A lot of good people are probably cursing me right now, but I think it’s time we talk about this.

On Monday, 6 people lost their lives in Eastleigh following a grenade attack. Just a day earlier, a suspected terrorist died through his own explosive. Last Saturday, there were reports of an attempted attack at Taj Mall. A few months ago, a bus was blown up in Pangani. There was also a blast at Assandands along Moi Avenue… and we have not started on Westgate yet.

In the past three years, Kenya has probably suffered more terrorist attacks than all its other years combined. Was sending troops to Somalia worth it?

Was it intelligent to send troops to a country at war, yet we cannot even protect our borders?

This photo elaborates on that.
