The Kenya Defence Forces (KDF) Female Engagement Team (FET) deployed in Somalia under African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM) on Wednesday, 17th November 2021 donated hybrid chicken to local women groups in Dhobley to start poultry businesses.
FET team leader Lieutenant Colonel (Reverend) Jane Wairimu, while handing over the donation, said the hybrid chicken will be instrumental in improving local chicken breed through cross breeding.

This aspect is critical as it offers ways for them to build the economy and support society,” said Lieutenant Colonel Wairimu.
