Somalia expresses concerns following withdrawal of Kenyan Forces from the Jubaland camp

Somalia has expressed its concerns following the abrupt withdrawal of Kenya Defence Forces from the only remaining camp in Jubaland saying the move will expose the country to Al-Shabaab threats. Kenyan troops have reportedly started withdrawing from Somalia after moving out of their command centre in Busar, north of Jubaland. The Kenyan government has not provided reasons for the troops withdrawal, but there are reports that the withdrawal is due to a funding problem for The African Union Mission in Somalia-AMISOM. Despite the militants being driven out of the Somali capital Mogadishu several years ago, they've managed to regroup in rural areas where they continue to launch attacks.

For more on this, Channel Africa's Khumbelo Munzhelele spoke to Kwezi Mngqibisa, Co-ordinator of Somalia project initiative at The African Centre for the Constructive Resolution of disputes-ACCORD.
