Kenyan Troops Heighten Patrols In DRC Amid Festive Season.
The Kenyan Contingent deployed under the United Nations Organisation Stabilition Mission in the Democratic Republic of Congo ( MONUSCO) has intensified patrols in the general area of Eringeti, Eastern- DRC this festive season.
During the festive period operation, Kenyan troops work in close coordination with the Congolese Force, (FARDC) and the South Africa National Defense Forces (SANDF) to intensify patrols in the area so as to deny militia groups freedom of movement.
The troops also interacted with locals in the area who appreciated the presence of Kenyan troops in the area and pledged their continued support in the restoration of peace.
Eringeti has been experiencing frequent attacks by suspected ADF elements and other local militias. The heightened patrols continue to have a positive impact as normalcy has returned in the region.
