Withdrawal of Kenyan Troops from South Sudan

  • November 10, 2016

Last week the Kenyan government announced to withdraw all its troops from South Sudan. This stemmed from the decision by the UN Secretary General to dismiss the Kenyan commander of the UNMISS. After a U.N. inquiry accused UNMISS of failing to respond to an attack on a Juba hotel during fighting in the South Sudanese capital in July, Lieutenant General Johnson Mogoa Kimani Ondieki was fired. The Kenyan government also announced that they had discontinued plans to contribute to a regional protection force and also to ‘disengage from the South Sudan Peace Process’.
