KDF and the Somali military operating under the AMISOM banner a few hours ago took control of al Shabaab's last key stronghold of Kuday.
Kuday is an island in Kismayo, in the Lower Juba region and was the last remaining Al Shabaab stronghold in the region. It has been a key logistical and operational base used to launch attacks in Southern Somalia. It also served as a key point for entry of contraband goods into the area.
Casualty figures were not given after the fierce fire fight that led to the capture but official sources said; "scores of al-Shabaab fighters were killed, five vehicles destroyed and assorted weapons and ammunition seized." The statement from the department of defence in Nairobi added; “This is a major loss to the militia as it limits its freedom of action." Read the full report.
So are Kenyans safer now? Well, according to past scenarios terrorists usually get more active and vicious when left without a base or stronghold to operate from. Kenyan security analysts are however confident that this will be a difficult blow for the terror group to recover from. Only time will tell.
