AU troops restore water supply to Tabda residents
Kenya Defence Forces (KDF) troops operating in Somalia under the African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM) last week repaired a water pump supplying water to Tabda residents. The pump, which was broken and had been abandoned for a long time, had left area residents without a reliable water supply. Repair of the pump has restored water supply to the residents and cushioned them against the ongoing drought effects currently being experienced in the area. KDF troops also donated foodstuff including rice, flour, milk, beans and clean drinking water to lessen the effects of food and fresh water scarcity in the area. The Officer Commanding Tabda, Major Gichubi Waweru affirmed KDF’s commitment to improving the livelihood of locals in the area as they continue to degrade the Al Shabaab terrorists. Tabda Officer Commanding Station, Mohamed Mahat Harun thanked KDF for the kind gesture and pledged continued support to the troops in fighting Al Shabaab..
