Ex KDF Soldiers To Be Charged
The trial of 27 Kenya Defence Forces soldiers is expected to start today, Monday at the court martial in Mtongwe naval base, in Mombasa County.
The soldiers are facing desertion charges.
This was after they allegedly left the military un-procedurally several years ago for greener pastures abroad.
The soldiers are alleged to have left their bases without being released by the department of defence to join private security contractors in war-torn countries among them Iraq, Afghanistan and Kuwait.
